Are you basing your work on any of the linker scripts that the v850e-gcc
build process ought to have squirrelled away in the general vicinity of
/usr/local/v850e/lib/ldscripts/ ? At least v850.x shows a suitable way
to handle .rosdata .

Sorry I can't advise there. Having had the luxury of a real ICE, I
haven't tried gdb or similar.

The only reason for suggesting objdump is that it immediately shows how
the sections chain through memory, and one starting at a wrong address
often has a cause in its predecessor. YMMV

Ah well, if no clues are being shaken loose, then perhaps you're right;
it's time to be satisfied that you have it working. :-)
