Yep, but it is easy to fix. You see, I'm pretty certain you have a
rockbox_flash.rock that is an odd number of bytes long. As it happens, I
encountered the same thing, not 30 minutes ago, when adapting the "flash
UI" for the player! :) In plugins/, add the following line:

         . = ALIGN(0x4);

at the end of every section (to be on the safe side; for this problem it
is probably sufficient to have it in the last section), something like this:

     .rodata : {
         . = ALIGN(0x4);
     } > PLUGIN_RAM
