I did that, too, but you have to know what you are doing.
This trick *only* works if you know that your symbol is
in the 'data' area and you want to avoid the compiler to
assume it to be in the short data area.
E.g., if you know our symbol is .text then you would declare
it as a function, of course.
Using a section __attribute__ is IMO preferable.
