In binutils 2.31, relocation type R_X86_64_PLT32 for 32-bit PC-relative

The kernel fix is in commit b21ebf2fb4cde16, and a similar fix is
available for VB in the VB Developers Mailing List and has been applied
to Debian unstable.
I don't understand. the commit is in the kernel since 4.16. which is in
Tumbleweed. I suppose older distro won't receive binutils 2.31.
Older distros will receive binutils 2.31 via the Toolchain Module
(binutils will be updated in the main codestream). That will happen
around October I guess.
But binutils itself will not introduce those relocations (well,
maybe it will relax to them, didn't check).
so, the commit was backported to 4.4 (LEap 42.*). If need be, we ca
backport to 4.12 (Leap 15).
