Comment (by boklm):

 Reverting `13e570f80cbfb299a8858ce6830e91a6cb40ab7b` on binutils 2.25 or
 2.26.1 is fixing the issue. Reverting it on 2.27 or later is difficult as
 this part of the code has been changed.

 I also did some builds after removing the `enable-reloc-section-ld.patch`
 and `64bit-fixups.patch` patches, and the issue is still present, so it
 seems the issue is not related with those patches.

 I will fill a binutils ticket.
