section() handling changed (or a bug was introduced)?


I've got a file test.c:

volatile unsigned char __sparc32_atomic_locks[64]
  __attribute__ ((section (".gnu.linkonce.b.__sparc32_atomic_locks")));

Now I'm using gcc 3.3.5 and I generate assembler:

        .file   "test.c"
.globl __sparc32_atomic_locks
        .section        .gnu.linkonce.b.__sparc32_atomic_locks,"aw",@nobits
        .align 32
        .type   __sparc32_atomic_locks, @object
        .size   __sparc32_atomic_locks, 64
__sparc32_atomic_locks:
        .zero   64
        .section        .note.GNU-stack,"",@progbits
        .ident  "GCC: (GNU) 3.3.5 (PLD Linux)"

Looks ok. And now let's do the same thing with gcc 3.4.3 20041008:

[builder2@storm builder2]$ cat test.s
        .file   "test.c"
.globl __sparc32_atomic_locks
        .section        .bss,"awG",@nobits,.__sparc32_atomic_locks,comdat
        .align 32
        .type   __sparc32_atomic_locks, @object
        .size   __sparc32_atomic_locks, 64
__sparc32_atomic_locks:
        .zero   64
        .section        .note.GNU-stack,"",@progbits
        .ident  "GCC: (GNU) 3.4.3 20041008 (prerelease) (PLD Linux)"


Obviously the second example is broken. Is this some kind of changed syntax 
(haven't found anything about it with google) or just a plain bug?

(either way it breaks glibc build and I really need that glibc :)
