Can you send me that linker script?
I've tried to alter that script to make it work that way I want with no
success. I was only able to give my code place before the whole .text
segment (after the vectors) or after the whole .text segment, but I was not
able to put my constants to specific address somewhere "inside" the .text

I have done this in Introl-C11 where I had external memory mapped I/O
registers. I had to manually massage the linker editor script file. For
avr-gcc this will be in /usr/local/avr/lib/ldscripts/ (or similar in
WinAVR). But you don't want to edit those but to copy one into your project
and figure out how to override the default with your own.

Due to the memory map I had I/O in the midst of my EPROM space. Once I got
the Introl linker working the way I wanted it nicely split my object code
around the I/O sections.

One must question the need to map constants to a predetermined location in
