In my experience, this behavior is usually a problem with the linker
definition file.  I'm not certain if it is a bug in the toolchain, or
simply some kind of mistake in the lds file.

What version of the compiler are you using?

Cross compiling, perhaps?

I'm including a link to a version of the linker file that I've used.
It may not work as-is for you because I added some sections in order
to move code around.


There is an linker definition file there as well as an old tar-ball
with sources for u-boot that did build.
