ARM64 Linaro toochain Link error ( R_AARCH64_ADR_PREL_PG_HI21 )

Hi Experts,

We are using address which is more than 32 bits with for example : 0x1000000000

when comes to adrp instruction it is giving following error.:

relocation truncated to fit: R_AARCH64_ADR_PREL_PG_HI21 against symbol `__BSS_START__' defined in .bss section in

ADRP Usage:

adrp    x0, __BSS_START__
add    x0, x0, :lo12:__BSS_START__

what could be possible solution for this?

When I tried to replace adrp and add with ldr instruction it works fine but is there any way that we can continue with adrp instruction?

LDR Usage:

ldr x0, = __BSS_START__

We are using aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc (Linaro GCC 6.2-2016.11) 6.2.1 20161016 toolchain.
