the checkers have rules derived from the attributes - it's
not always obvious up front (or necessarily even later).
my guess is that there's not an error, but just further
evolution in the section-combining stuff happening in
binutils that we've run into elsewhere.

if you can supply some header dumps (from readelf), I
can prod at this some more and see if I can understand
what's going on.
