function sections enabled versus this new way?

+ What impact does this have on BSP linkcmds? I am guessing since you
already added all the rtems sysinit magic, this will just work with no

delta is between the two solutions.  I am guessing this and function
sections will be consistently smaller as compared to when POSIX is
currently enabled.
