Oh, you can have that with the onboard tools from the GNU AVR
toolchain as well.

avr-objcopy -I binary -O ihex infile outfile

will also create you an ihex file from binary input.  Even better,

avr-objcopy -I binary -O elf32-avr infile.bin outfile.o

will yield you a relocatable object file (i. e. one you can use as
input to the linker), and provide it with three symbols:


So you could declare these symbols in your C file, like

extern void *_binary_infile_bin_start, _binary_infile_bin_end;
extern size_t _binary_infile_bin_size;

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
