I narrowed it down to one linker script, namely arch/x86/boot/setup.ld .

On my machine (amd64) running: 
ld -m elf_x86_64   -T arch/x86/boot/setup.ld arch/x86/boot/a20.o
arch/x86/boot/cmdline.o arch/x86/boot/copy.o arch/x86/boot/cpu.o
arch/x86/boot/cpucheck.o arch/x86/boot/edd.o arch/x86/boot/header.o
arch/x86/boot/main.o arch/x86/boot/mca.o arch/x86/boot/memory.o
arch/x86/boot/pm.o arch/x86/boot/pmjump.o arch/x86/boot/printf.o
arch/x86/boot/string.o arch/x86/boot/tty.o arch/x86/boot/video.o
arch/x86/boot/version.o arch/x86/boot/video-vga.o arch/x86/boot/video-vesa.o
arch/x86/boot/video-bios.o -o arch/x86/boot/setup.elf
and then
objcopy  -O binary arch/x86/boot/setup.elf arch/x86/boot/setup.bin
using the default linker, I get:
% file setup.bin
setup.bin: Linux kernel x86 boot executable RO-rootFS, Normal VGA

with gold I get:
% file setup.bin
setup.bin: x86 boot sector; partition 4: ID=0x1, starthead 0, startsector 0,
65535 sectors

So something wents wrong here. I'm no linker expert, but maybe you immediately
see whats wrong with arch/x86/boot/setup.ld.
