12.3 --any_contingency

Permits extra space in any execution regions containing .ANY sections for linker-generated content such as veneers and alignment padding.

Usage

Two percent of the extra space in such execution regions is reserved for veneers.

When a region is about to overflow because of potential padding, armlink lowers the priority of the .ANY selector.

This option is off by default. That is, armlink does not attempt to calculate padding and strictly follows the .ANY priorities.

Use this option with the --scatter option.
