Maintaining a completely separate linker instead of using the system's
linker is a fool's errand that leads to things like this and inability to
use ghci or TH on ARM, or having to have someone who does nothing but
follow all the changes made to every system linker we care about and
porting those changes to ghci's custom linker. The correct fix is the
upcoming change to have ghci use the system linker. In the meantime, I
offered a workaround.
