I want to fill my .bss section with the .bss parts from my object
files. BUT I want to have a specific file (pages.o below) last in the
.bss and page aligned.

I've tried:

  .bss  SIZEOF(.data) + ADDR(.data) :
  {
    _object.2 = . ;
    . += 24 ;
    *(.bss)
    *(COMMON)
     . = ALIGN(0x1000);
    pages.o(.bss)
     end = . ; _end = .;
  }

and

  .bss  SIZEOF(.data) + ADDR(.data) :
  {
    _object.2 = . ;
    . += 24 ;
    *(.bss)
    *(COMMON)
     . = ALIGN(0x1000);
    pages.*(.bss)
     end = . ; _end = .;
  }

But the "*(.bss)" part seems to gobble it up anyway. Probably because
that's how it's designed.

So, short of listing all my files except pages.o instead of "*" in
"*(.bss)", is there another way? (The other files are quite many and
I'd prefer not to have to edit the linker script when I add yet
another one.)


Right,
