thanks !

when make in my arch/i386/kernel dir , gcc need to build a .so file ,
	 it calls ld to link ,but failed with this error :

	 not enough room for program headers ,I know it is due to SIZEOF_HEADER buidin function,

	 but I do not know how to fix it

	 ld has been told to link with specilized ld-script ,which not use SIZEOF_HEADER.

	 so I feel it is confusing
	 appreciate for helps!
