Why does that make it safe -- the commit msg is a bit sparse, but I
assume the problem is that it generates
__attribute__((__section__("\".foo\"")))
from
__section(".foo")
after preprocessing, and clang keeps the quotes in the section name when
generating assembly, while gcc appears to strip them off.

It does that even if nested in another macro, no?

Am I missing something, or is KENTRY unused in the tree?
