â cat test.c
int y = 2;
int x __attribute__((section(".boot")));
int main()
    return x;

â cat boot
  .boot      :
    } > text

â  ~/avr/install/bin/avr-gcc -mmcu=atmega1280 test.c boot
/home/saaadhu/avr/install/lib/gcc/avr/4.8.1/../../../../avr/bin/ld: warning: boot contains output sections; did you forget -T?
/home/saaadhu/avr/install/lib/gcc/avr/4.8.1/../../../../avr/bin/ld: section .boot loaded at [0000000000000130,0000000000000131] overlaps section .data loaded at [0000000000000130,0000000000000131]

It works ok if the section is not assigned to the text MEMORY 
region i.e. without > text. And it obviously works if the .text 
output section contains *(.boot). I'm presuming this is because the .data
section's LMA is explicitly set to start where .text ends, and both .data
and .boot compete for that slot. Did I get that wrong?
