I might already have found the specific cause.

It seems with split sections we generate a dummy CmmProc, which has as 
entry label
 > error (split_sections_entry)

My patch likely introduces strictness on that field where it was lazy 
If this is the cause I expect to have a patch up in a hour or two and 
will merge
it after it validates.
