    The code is not legal, but the standard says that no
    diagnostic is required.
    If you want to complain anywhere, do so with the binutils
    guys. They maintain the linker. Most frequently, though,
    the answer will probably be "Don't do it". The reason
    being that the linker will usually warn you if a symbol
    has different size, but "int" and "int*" often have the
    same size, and then the linker can't really do anything
    about it.
