Linker manual says

     This option tells `ld' to sort the common symbols by size when it
     places them in the appropriate output sections.  First come all
     the one byte symbols, then all the two byte, then all the four
     byte, and then everything else.  This is to prevent gaps between
     symbols due to alignment constraints.

To prevent gaps between common symbols with different alignments,
shouldn't we sort common symbols by their sizes in descending order,
assuming small sizes need small alignments?
