You mean adding a symbol to .data by letting the compiler add a symbol
in .data for each module?

No, I mean add a symbol in the linker script, like ${RELOCATING+ ___data_start_reserved = .) ; } (i.e. another one like there is, but without the PROVIDE decoration).

I tried this:

  .data	  : AT (ADDR (.text) + SIZEOF (.text))
     PROVIDE (__data_start = .) ;
    __pr__ = .;

But with no avail. The map file shows that .data starts at 0x100,
just as without the __pr__, but .bss is wrong and overlaps I/O:

.data           0x00800100        0x0 load address 0x0000009e
                0x00800100                PROVIDE (__data_start, .)
                0x00800100                __pr__ = .
                0x00800100                . = ALIGN (0x2)
                0x00800100                _edata = .
                0x00800100                PROVIDE (__data_end, .)

.bss            0x00800060        0x2
                0x00800060                PROVIDE (__bss_start, .)
 .bss           0x00800060        0x2 foo.o
                0x00800060                aaa

At the start of .bss the location counter is moved backwards! I still think this is a linker bug.

An optimization should never ever change the semantic of a program!
