Yes, as is being discussed on #gcc, changing sections with GCC
__attribute__ is fine, but this code is changing section semantics behind
the compiler's back. One simply cannot expect that to work. Linkonce
sections are not just a blackbox string value for GCC to emit.
Paul Brook suggests adding
to Glibc for all files that explicitly declare symbols in linkonce
sections. That certainly seems appropriate to me.
