I'm not sure I understand your comment here - this is annotated as
SYM_FUNC_ which is the annotation for things that look like normal
C functions.

The _start and _end labels that were there before are explicitly
referenced by code, removing them would break the build.

So that the explicit .align above takes effect rather than anything the
macro decides to do, I'm trying to err on the side of caution here.
