much attention to head-xen.S bit). The only problem I found is comma,
which can't be escaped.

I've no idea how reliably this works across tool chain versions etc
though. It worked for me ;-)

I guess that's a broad enough selection of names. I had assumed it would impose normal symbol-like restrictions on the unquoted section name. (I guess ';' would also need quoting.)
