(Caution, non developer speaking.)

I think this is the kind of thing you see when the kernel source and
userland toolchain are not matched or close enough to the same.

This is why I prefer to download the entire source tree, then use to first build the toolchain, then the kernel and other
stuff. You are practically guaranteed to not have problems with the
toolchain itself that way. User errors unfortunately are something
else :)

I'd also like to know this, and I'd also like it to be part of the
default kernel since it's been so long that we have worked around the
"firmware kernel boot" limitations by booting the bootloader.
