Please could you file a bug report for this problem using the binutils
I have a patch to fix the problem, (by enforcing an 8-byte alignment
for the long branch stubs) but I expect that it will raise complaints
from people, along the lines of: "that nop you insert for alignment
purposes is not needed on my system - I am not using hardware
alignment checking". So it may need to be re-evaluated and a command
line option added to control its behaviour...
