Not enough information. Please show at least the linker-script, the
source-code of "Targets" and the complete map-File. The
assembler-listing generated by the compiler would help too (arm-elf-gcc
-S ...). Even better: create a minimal example to reproduce this (with
all files to create it: source(s), linker-script, makefile). I expect
these are "string"-contstanst used in subroutines either explicitly
defined ("static const char="foo") or implicit (outputfunc("foo")).
