Let me add that I am not so sure about this. I arrived at this problem because I started defining text_section through TARGET_ASM_INIT_SECTIONS instead of TEXT_SECTION_ASM_OP and crtstuff.c started complaining during libgcc compile time that TEXT_SECTION_ASM_OP was not defined.
I looked at most of the upstream backends and unfortunately none seem to not define TEXT_SECTION_ASM_OP even though according to the documents that's possible cause it allows you to define text_section through the TARGET_ASM_INIT_SECTIONS hook instead.
