Actually, doesn't that mean that you just change the definition of the
text (-T) address, like the kernel makefile does, or am I just showing my
lack of knowledge on this subject? :-)

I mean, couldn't you build the LKM and pass it -Ttext e0000000 or some
such?   It doesn't strike me that the toolchain itself needs to be changed
for that.

...or is this the 26 vs. 32 bit issue remarked earlier?
