Just FYI (for the "dropped" MLs while finding the "brain bug"):
Finally, with the help of x86 folks and H.J. Lu a fix for the
linux-kernel can now be found in [1].

Commits [2] and [3] from binutils master GIT helped to dig deeper into
the right places.
So I would appreciated both to be backported to binutils-2_21-branch GIT.

@Matthias:
If you like you can use the two backported patches (see file
attachments) for a next binutils upload to Debian/sid.
As usually (and you demanded once from me) I dropped any ChangeLog
entries from the code, but kept the history in the commit-text. Also,
I documented my changes.
So the patches should cleanly apply.

Thanks.
