Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When running Tools -> Update Bitstream, the following error is issued:

"Analyzing file ppc405_i/code/executable.elf...
ERROR:MDT - Memory overlap detected between various ELFs for processor PPC405_i
XIL_MEMUSAGE - process used 10936320 bytes of memory
gmake: *** [implementation/download.bit] Error 1
ERROR:MDT - Error while running "gmake -f system.make init_bram"

This error occurs because the program headers (PHDRS) included in the ELF file are incorrect. Verify that your linker script correctly specifies the PHDRS.
