That's plain wrong, sorry. I also used 2.17 and the error is the same. 
So the two latest stable versions of binutils don't work with that code. 
You won't get that code to translate unless you use an experimental 
version of binutils (snapshot).

So either we get this problem solved differently or I'll have to go 
ahead and check the patch in. Relying on experimental toolchains is not 
an option. Even if your toolchain provider uses experimental binutils 
versions, that's nothing we should enforce.
