Hi Experts,

I am confused on seeing a build snippet working fine:
powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc -T test.o -o test

As per my understanding, I need to give a -Wl,T option for this to work i.e.
powerpc-linux-gnu-gcc -Wl,-T test.o -o test

(1) How is this working with -Wl?
(2) This lds creates a section after ro data. I was under the
impression that any lds specified with -T is independent and complete.
But if this lds is declaring just one section, then how does the code
