None, because you shouldn't do that.  It's almost guaranteed to be the
wrong way of solving the actual problem, and it would completely break
compatibility of the code you compiled with any precompiled code, most
notably the code making up the DJGPP C runtime library.

Anyway: this is a pure GCC question, quite independant of DJGPP.
Which is why the answer is in the GCC docs:

	info gcc "C Extensions" "Variable Attributes"
