+* The linker script syntax has a new command for output sections: ASCII (<size>) "string"
+  This will insert a string of the specified length at the current location.
+  It will be zero-filled if the string is shorter than <size> and truncated if longer.
 * Add -z isa-level-report=[none|all|needed|used] to the x86 ELF linker
   to report needed and used x86-64 ISA levels.
