OK, there you are raising a new requirement, not addressed by Johann or
myself, and unrelated to the orphaning issue to which you purport to
reply. I do hope that you understand that the tweak should do what is

As to the new issue, it appears that the primitive method of relying on
file link order is inadequate to your needs, and that you're using
sort-section=name on the commandline or SORT_BY_NAME(.foo*) in the
linker script. If the limitation of ascending sort is backwards for you,
then might I respectfully suggest that you are choosing the wrong names.
