Is there support in the binutils linker to reorder code within a module to 
improve locality of reference in order to reduce page misses in a paging 
based memory system? The (partial) call graph should be used to determine 
the order. Is this possible at all in binutils ld? Has it been done? Did 
anyone worked on it?


PS. The code to be reordered is ARM code.
