Hi H.J.

  I am not sure that we can produce a more explicit error message without going
into a lot of effort to record undefined symbols, but maybe the attached patch
will help a little.  With this applied I get the following output:

  foo.t:7 unable to compute value of load base because the following expression
is nonconstant:
  ((ADDR (.foo) + 0xfff) & 0xfffffffffffff000)

What do you think ?

Obviously I would need to run through the linker testsuite for all the
toollchains to make sure that this does not break anything, and also a similar
chage is probably needed for the other two locations where a nonconstant
expression is reported, but I think that this patch is certainly a beginning.
