9.13.2 x86 specific Directives
- Reserve length (an absolute expression) bytes for a local common
denoted by symbol. The section and value of symbol are
those of the new local common. The addresses are allocated in the bss
section, so that at run-time the bytes start off zeroed. Since
symbol is not declared global, it is normally not visible to
ld. The optional third parameter, alignment, specifies the desired alignment of the symbol in the bss section.
This directive is only available for COFF based x86 targets.
