Symbol versions

The ARM linker conforms to the Base Platform ABI for the ARM Architecture (BPABI) and supports the GNU-extended symbol versioning model.

To add a symbol version to an existing symbol, you must define a version symbol at the same address. A version symbol is of the form:

The version symbols must be enclosed in vertical bars.

For example, to define a default version:

|my_versioned_symbol@@ver2|   ; Default version
my_asm_function PROC
                ...
                BX lr
                ENDP

To define a non default version:

|my_versioned_symbol@ver1|    ; Non default version
my_old_asm_function     PROC
                        ...
                        BX lr
                        ENDP
