This is definitely not the latest binutils you've stated before. As
you might see - these are at least 3 years old and are known to be
heavily buggy on ARM.

No. They are just buggy (at least assembler).

Well, sorry, then you're not lucky then. You should expect invalid
code / spurious error messages produced in many places (and you
already saw this!)
