Marcus: look at the file "eeprom.h" for hints on how to do what you want to
By the time you do the assignment you are no longer dealing with variables
in the eeprom segment.  You are simply assigning values to SRAM that
happens to have the same address of your eeprom variables.

GCC doesn't really handle various memory spaces like ICC or IAR or CV does.
You can tell it to put stuff into various segments, but accessing FLASH or
EEPROM takes special routines that are handled by macros and inline
assembly in the avr version of GCC.  The header file I mentioned will give
you the details.

For your bit test problems: the AVR instruction set has all sorts of
limitations of which registers are usable with which instructions.  For
example the immediate instructions only work on R16-R31.  All the bit
manipulation instructions only operate on the lower 32 I/O addresses.  Etc.

Know the hardware!
