No, this is certainly not intended behaviour.  See linker.c:fix_syms
where we go to some pains to keep symbols in similar sections.  Hmm, I
don't see ".stack" described by a struct bfd_elf_special_section
anywhere.  Lacking input sections, your .stack output section is
probably being created non-ALLOC.
