# Linker address generation validity checker. By default, GNU ld is
# broken when faced with sections where the load address (i.e. the
# spot in the XIP program binary where initialized data lives) differs
# from the virtual address (i.e. the location in RAM where that data
# will live at runtime. We need to be sure we're using the
# ALIGN_WITH_INPUT feature correctly everywhere, which is hard --
# especially so given that many of these bugs are semi-invisible at
# runtime (most initialized data is still a bunch of zeros and often
# "works" even if it's wrong).
# This quick test just checks the offsets between sequential segments
# with separate VMA/LMA addresses and verifies that the size deltas
# are identical.
# Note that this is assuming that the address generation is always
# in-order and that there is only one "ROM" LMA block. It's possible
# to write a valid linker script that will fail this script, but we
# don't have such a use case and one isn't forseen.
