I was able to reproduce this error by using ELDK 4.2 (gcc 4.2.2) at least for 
TQM8541 and TQM8548. ELDK 5.2 (gcc 4.6.1) does not have this problem. I assume 
that the image size has increased over the time.

Not sure if we really need to remove some config option to make it fit again 
for the older toolchains. Or if its enough to support these targets with newer
