Hi H.J., Hi Alan,

I have been looking at PR 12565, and I have to say that I do not 
understand the linker's behaviour for NOLOAD sections on ELF based 
targets.  What is the point of having a section that cannot be loaded 
and that does not have any contents ?

Also, as far as I can see, this behaviour is not documented anywhere. 
Do you know of any applications that rely upon this feature ?
