Hi Guys,

  I am applying the patch below to add support for upper and lower
  sections to the MSP430's msp430xl-sim.ld linker script.  These
  sections are used to help partition a program betweem low (< 64K) and
  high (> 64K) memory regions which are found on a number MSP430 chips.

	* msp430/ (CRT_OBJS): Add crt_high_bss.o.
	* msp430/crt0.S (high_bss): Add.
	* msp430/msp430-sim.ld: Add error message if .upper sections are
	* msp430/msp430xl-sim.ld (MEMORY): Adjust to better mimic real
	life MCUs.  Add support for upper and lower sections.
