LTIB and linux-2.6.29

I am using the LTIB iso (m53xxevb-20081215-ltib.iso) from Freescale.  The target is an MCF5329 EVB.  In an effort to get around the known issues with Gadgetfs in the 2.6.26 kernel, I am attempting to use the newer 2.6.29 (either .1, RC1 or RC2) kernel.  I have installed the source tree from, and pointed LTIB at the local tree.  Everything compiles just fine, but vmlinux refuses to link giving:


/opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.3.45-uclibc-0.9.45/m68k-uclinux/bin/m68k-uclinux-ld.real: error: no memory region specified for loadable section `.init.rodata'


as the error.  I have not applied any uClinux or MCFXXX patches to the tree, and was wondering if there were some that I needed?


Also, I get the same error when attempting to use any of the 2.6.28 kernels.


Any ideas?


Baring a solution to the 2.6.29 kernels, does anyone use gadgetfs with an older kernel they could recommend?
