--- Comment #7 from Alan Modra <amodra at gmail dot com> ---
I'll note that many of the generic linker issues that prevent this bug being
fixed have already been solved, and many targets no longer make symbols like
_DYNAMIC absolute.

So for example, a user script that does something like

  .text : { .... }
  my_end_text = .;

will define my_end_text as a section relative symbol rather than absolute as
older linkers did, which is likely what most users want.  Users who really do
want absolute symbols defined from dot now need to write 
  my_end_text = ABSOLUTE (.);

Even so, there will no doubt be projects that break..
