o Why is _etext is not equal to the virtual address of the .data
section (in the elf binary) ?
o And also _edata is not the virtual addess of the .bss section in the
o To locate the span of virtual address of DATA segment and BSS
segment is a better Idea to read the virtual addess form the .data
and .bss sections of elf binary or depend on _etext , _edata (they
seem to be broken ?)
