I can confim that using bfd instead of gold fixes the issue on armhf.

armel seems to be sufering from the same issue but I have not yet tried 
a build with bfd on armel.

I will do an armel (but on armv7 hardware, I don't have any armv4t or 
armv5 hardware to test on and all my armv6 stuff is running raspbian) 
build and test once I have finished doing the one for raspbian, 
unfortunately each build takes days on my imx53 (I have an odriod u2 on 
order which should speed things up)

Patch to make the package use bfd rather than gold on armel and armhf is 
attached. I may or may not upload this as a NMU.
