I wish to place a signature series of bytes in high flash ROM, so that a post build script can find them and
overwrite them with new values.
How do I tell the linker to place a const array of bytes into a given high flash location.

Ideally I would like something like

static const unsigned char []={ 0x31, 0x41 } = 0x17800;

to put the data into flash rom at 0x17800;

Do I need to define a custom section in the C code and add to the linker scripts? If so
does anyone know the syntax?
