About mapping symbols
Mapping symbols are generated by the compiler and assembler to identify inline transitions between code and data at literal pool boundaries, and between ARM code and Thumb code, such as ARM/Thumb interworking veneers.
The linker defines some symbols that are reserved by ARM, and that you can access if required.
The linker generates various types of region-related symbols that you can access if required.
Section-related symbols are symbols generated by the linker when it creates an image without scatter-loading.
