Um, why does it need -nostdlib? Is it calling the __syscall stub directly?
(Is it even expecting to do a kernel call at any point!?)
crt0 really only works best in conjunction with libc (and crt0 is also
excluded with -nostdlib), so if you are using -nostdlib on a program, you
need to know Exactly what you're doing. My guess is that the use of
-nostdlib is incorrect.
