Historically a new BSP variant has been introduced when there needs to
be a change at this .cfg level. But, I could see a rationale to
include this kind of switching behavior at a higher level. Someone
might consider how to integrate it into our configure.ac/Makefile.am
black magic, but that is beyond me :).
An alternative approach that may work from what you propose is to use
following in the xilinx zynq .cfg file:
LDFLAGS ?= -Wl, --gc-sections
then, you can provide own LDFLAGS = -Wl on your make command line or
in your Makefile, I think that would work bit more elegant
