That warning should be "there can be only one section with executable
code per translation unit", or similar.

.S files are simply run through the C preprocessor first, and then given
to the assembler. The only difference there should be wrt debug info is
you could have some macros that expand to assembler debug statements.

The compiler can of course make sure not to use certain constructs in
its generated assembler code, while the assembler will have to swallow
whatever the user wrote.
