This is triggered by changing files in my network protocol code for no
apparent reason. My code is at available at http://repo.or.cz/w/cor.git?a=tree

However, if only one instead of both credits_(un)lock_conn changes are made,
the error/warning is gone. By searching on the internet it looks like the
linker runs out of ressources, maybe because of certain properties of the
build environment. However, I did not find a solution yet. Any ideas?

My system is debian stable/squeeze.
