Hi Nick,

tested it, and it works like a charm :-).

Although I think it should be investigated if the current default behavior
should be considered "buggy".

I can not really come up with a scenario where this padding makes sens (that
doe not necessarily mean there is none). The section is only padded at the end,
so there is no label which is modified by the padding. So it could only have
affect during linking when code is positioned. In my current opinion the
alignment of the start of section boundaries should depend on the definition of
the code containing the section to start or the linker(-script). But I do not
really know much about the ARC-architecture maybe rules are different there.
