I've never tried to save runtime program variables in EEPROM, but you
might want to look at the linker scripts.

You will find lots of linker scripts in RTEMS (for different
platforms). Search for linkcmds files.

But I think modifying the linker scripts requires a bit of wisdom. May
be there's another, easiest, way to do it.
