Ha!  Great minds think alike. :-)

I have just posted a very similar patch to the PR, although I
think that we do not need any special case code for the PRE_INIT_ARRAY
section as that is handled by a KEEP directive in the linker script.
Hmm - unless there can be PREINIT_ARRAY sections whose name is not
.preinit_array.  Which I suppose is possible...

Would you mind extending your patch to include this scenario ?  
I think that with that change in place I would be happy to approve it.
