I'll just note that another way to insert data into a linked binary
is to use a linker script fragment referenced from the command line.
I doubt that this would be any better than creating a "magic .o" file,
but it is worth knowing.
That might be an interesting alternative. Could you use this for e.g.
inserting a .comment section fragment with an unique (version) string?
That would be stripped away, but should still count for the build-id
