common RODATA in (2.5.59)

Hi All,

The new common definition of RODATA for linker scripts
(in include/asm-generic/ is causing me some
amount of pain, at least on the m68knommu architecture.

The problem is that on the m68knommu arch linker script
it fundamentaly groups everything into 2 memory regions,
one for flash and one for ram. Each section is then
directed to the appropriate memory region, eg:

         .text : {
         } > flash

With the way the RODATA define is setup I cannot do this.
It contains definitions for a number of complete sections.

Anyone got any ideas on the best way to fix this?
