This looks like a bug in bfd.ld? There are no versioned symbols in any
of the input files (and no output section either!)

The link command is:
$ ld -m elf_x86_64 --no-ld-generated-unwind-info -z noreloc-overflow -pie \
--no-dynamic-linker   --orphan-handling=warn -T \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.lds \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/kernel_info.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/head_64.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/string.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/cmdline.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/error.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/cpuflags.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/early_serial_console.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/kaslr.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/kaslr_64.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/mem_encrypt.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/pgtable_64.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/acpi.o \
-o arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux

None of the inputs have the section:

$ for i in arch/x86/boot/compressed/kernel_info.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/head_64.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/misc.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/string.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/cmdline.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/error.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/piggy.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/cpuflags.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/early_serial_console.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/kaslr.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/kaslr_64.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/mem_encrypt.o \
arch/x86/boot/compressed/pgtable_64.o arch/x86/boot/compressed/acpi.o \
; do echo -n $i": "; readelf -Vs $i | grep 'version'; done

arch/x86/boot/compressed/pgtable_64.o: No version information found in this file.
arch/x86/boot/compressed/acpi.o: No version information found in this file.

And it's not in the output:

$ readelf -Vs arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux | grep version
No version information found in this file.

So... for the kernel we need to silence it right now.
