This is still a bug.  It's a harmless warning, but it is caused by link_elf.c 
not handling a file and link_elf_obj.c then handling it ok.  Probably what 
needs to happen is that this specific error condition shouldn't output an 
error message, but should return a unique error value, and kern_linker.c 
should only output an error if all of the linker_if handlers fail with this 
error value and then output its own error message.
