hello!

i have problems with a kernel module: when i insmod it, i get a segmentation 
fault and "Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 
00000004" oops, so as far as i understand it, it seems like relocation does 
not occur properly.

i can reproduce the problem with the attached simple test code. when i insmod 
only hello_module.o it works fine, but when i insmod the result of "ld" 
(mod.o) i get the error. so it seems the problem is with the linker. or am i 
using wrong compiler / linker flags or doing something stupid?

i compile with "gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer 
- -fno-strict-aliasing -mno-abicalls -G 0 -fno-pic -mcpu=r4600 -mips2 
- -Wa,--trap -pipe -mlong-calls -I/usr/src/linux/include -O3 -D__KERNEL__ 
- -DLINUX -DMESSAGES"

and link with "ld -r -o mod.o hello_module.o b.o"

versions:
* au1500 CPU
* kernel version 2.4.21-pre4 from cvs
* gcc version 3.0.4 (also: gcc version 2.95.4)
* GNU ld version 2.12.90.0.1 20020307 Debian/GNU Linux
* insmod version 2.4.15

thanks for any hints.

btw: this issue is not related to the one i posted about before ("au1500mm 
problems") - which is resolved already and was caused by a wrong 
initialization of the dual PHY ethernet hardware.
