 Essentially all platforms that currently set the address to something
that's not aligned to a 64kB boundry.  I'd like binutils to be fixed
instead, though -- I'll try to track the problem down and cook a patch
before 2.15.  I think the problem may be considered serious enough the
release may even be deferred for a few days if necessary (since I believe
it's quite close).
