Is this an x86 specific issue? Or is there something I
need to tweak in our linker script?

Any other ideas?

User error.  -r and --gc-sections requires that you specify -e and/or
-u to specify the root symbol(s) you wish to keep.

Thanks. That makes sense. This will be tedious to fix but not hard.

I wonder why this hadn't broken in the other 150+ BSPs. Weird.

I suspect I need to check my build configure arguments
and build everything again. This might break more BSPs. :(
