Yep, the problem is where to produce the section ordering file.
The scheme is as follows:
  - with -fprofile-generate instrument every function entry point and record
    time of first and last invocation of the functoin
  - At compile time we take functions that are executed during the startup
    and we want to order them in the increasing order of the first invocation
    time measured at FDO time. So we know the relative position of given function
    in the program, but not the complette function order.
