Conversions of target macros to hooks are generally of interest.
I don't think we want a stream-of-consciousness sequence of messages about
successive aspects of the issue. Rather, when you are ready, send to
gcc-patches a patch (or patch series) with a thorough self-contained
analysis of the issue, the approach your patch uses to tackle it and the
rationale for that approach. Explain in your message what
TEXT_SECTION_ASM_OP is, what its semantics are, how it relates to the
mechanisms for section selection in GCC, how it is used in different parts
of GCC and how your patch cleans things up and addresses identified issues
around this macro.
