It looks like all the

	.section foo ; .... ; .text

in <sys/cdefs*.h> (or at least <sys/cdefs_elf.h>) should be

	.pushsection foo ; .... ; .popsection

Doing this ends up with:

	Disassembly of section .data:
	00000024 <incstackp>:
	  24:   00 00                   add    %al,(%eax)

Anyone more familiar with binutils care to comment?
