I do not seem any impending issue with this patch, however we must be aware that since max alignment is used as the default one for page alignment for some sections it might interfere with both memory utilization and relro setup. There is some information on a recent powerpc64le issue that occurred from a similar change in binutils [1].

Since lld currently does not define a 'common' page size, running lld with this modification on 4K kernels might result on both issues described above.
