The address it has crashed it is 0x10000. This almost certainly means the
line number it is reporting is a red herring - it's just GDB's best attempt
to find a source line for 0x10000 when there isn't really one.

My guess is that your program entry point is meant to be 0x10000 but you
haven't actually loaded your program into memory yet.
