Hello Eric,

thank you for the reply. When I use the alignment attribute then the char
array will be aligned correctly. Here is the result of nm comman.

00ffc00c B _bss
00ffc00c D _edata
00ffc00c b _stack01
00ffc01c b _stack02
00ffc02c b _stack03
00ffc03c b _stack04
00ffc040 b _stack05
00ffc044 B _count
00ffc048 B _ebss

But this does not solve the eCos idle_thread_stack problem because it is
inside the kernel and this should be a kernel patch. Also thís would be
necessary for other char arrays within the eCos source that should be
