another ill test?

ld-elf/warn2 uses symbol2w.s, which contains

        .section        .gnu.warning,"a",%progbits
	.global Foo
        .type   Foo, %object
        .size   Foo, 20
Foo:
        .string "function 'Foo' used"

As a result, warn2.d expects Foo to end up in .text, but to me placement
of a symbol in a to be discarded section seems ill in the first place. I'd
therefore like to move Foo into .data, and additionally relax warn2.d to
not expect a specific section number.

Thanks, Jan
