DT_TEXTREL in head_64.o

I've recently noticed the following message while compiling various 4.7.x and 4.8.x kernels:
Code: Select all
  MKPIGGY arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.S
  AS      arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.o
  DATAREL arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux
  LD      arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux
ld: arch/x86/boot/compressed/head_64.o: warning: relocation in readonly section `.head.text'
ld: warning: creating a DT_TEXTREL in a shared object.

It doesn't causes any symptoms, but I wonder whether it can be ignored. Anybody else have the same experience or is it just my setup? Grsec patch touches head_64.S here-and-there.

Thx: Dw.
