Here's the config:

Hummm, I just tried that .config with a vanilla and it built just fine.

So either you have some patches that make a difference, or it's a binutils version problem.

Can you send the output of scripts/ver_linux to see what binutils version you are using?

Also you can try a "make debug_kallsyms" build that creates a .tmp_map1 and a .tmp_map2 files that might help diagnose the problem.
