Hi Doug,

> The ARM linux kernel also uses NOLOAD.

Do you know if this entirely for .bss style sections, or maybe for 
establishing a region of memory mapped hardware or I/O ports ?

The point I am interested in is if we changed the current behaviour of 
NOLOAD so that it *did* preserve the contents of any input sections (if 
those contents were non-zero) would this break anything ?  I am pretty 
certain that it would, so I am not going to create a patch to make this 
change.  But I do wonder if there any applications out there that are 
relying upon NOLOAD to actually get rid of the contents of input sections.
