I reverted [40c623a8/rtems] and built the qoriq_e6500_32 with the -fPIC option. I got no linker failures in the test suite.

We should investigate what sections are not recognized before we add dangerous *.x wildcards.

See also [1fcdd639ee38a990e629fdaa670eeda9faae9beb/rtems].

In 7bf072b/rtems:

bsp/powerpc: Remove wildcards in linkcmds.base

This reverts commit 40c623a883da5dd80e4599cf4cd14097834706bd.

The use of postfix wildcards, e.g. of the form "*.x" is dangerous since
it circumvents the standard matching rules for sections.

Unknown input sections should be added explicitly to the desired output
section via "x.*" wildcards.

Update #3307.
