I tripped over this because I was accidentally trying to use a XenLinux kernel as my crash kernel and it uses notes and hence suffers from the bug. It won't affect a normal native kernel since they don't use notes. I just figured I might as well fix it when I noticed it. It does affect native kernels built from the xen-unstable source since they (somehow) end up with an empty notes segment. Probably not worth worrying about since it's probably a xen-unstable problem but it's possible that the pv_ops xen stuff might do the same thing.
