AREA attribute to all code sections.
AREA attribute causes the linker to treat the section as
It is the user's responsibility to ensure that the code in the section is safe to run in execute-only memory. For example:
- The code must not contain literal pools.
- The code must not attempt to load data from the same, or another, execute-only section.
This option is only supported for:
- Processors that support the Arm®v8‑M.mainline or Armv8‑M.baseline architecture.
- Processors that support the Armv7‑M architecture, such as Cortex®‑M3, Cortex‑M4, and Cortex‑M7.
Processors that support the Armv6‑M architecture.
NoteArm has only performed limited testing of execute-only code on Armv6‑M targets.
