Yes, because it is a compiler (or binutils) bug, resp. lack of recent enough toolchain.
Using gcc 4.4.5 (compatible with Debian Wheezy) outside the replicant tree makes it
compile fine.

Replicant 4.0 is Android 4.0 and not prepared to support the latest kernel code.

So we don't know yet, how to really address it since fixing compiler issues in kernel
code we don't understand is quire risky to the stability and contrary to our goal to
use less and less differences from linus/master.

Yes, it is an incompatibility introduced by 3.12-rc1 or rc2 but apparently wasn't
resolved upstream (yet).
