This illustrates the problem with having all these forks of that 
don't get consistently updated (I gave a list in 
<> that may not be 
exhaustive) - it might be better to parametrize more so that some 
of these forks can go away (after working out exactly what differences are 
actually deliberate differences required by the individual linker script 
templates rather than divergence from subsequent changes being made to only).
