we saw this on Blackfin some time ago and it was tracked back to attribute mismatches in
assembly files:

when `ld -r` ran, the sections named .text couldnt be combined due to different attributes so ld just added the .#
suffix for us

if you have scanelf installed (from pax-utils), that might help track back the source object ... `scanelf -qrk .text.1 ./`
