If your commercial toolchain understands the __attribute__ syntax then
I suspect it's based on gcc which would mean you have a right to the
No initialization needed; Ld will use the flags of the first instance
of an input section for the output section which usually is right. In
the rare case this isn't suitable you can use a .section pseudo-op
in inline assembler or assembler to setup the section with the right
flags. Just make sure this section is linked first.
