In my opinion it should work. if I use SYMBOL_PREFIX + two underscore
for section name I should always obtain different names.
So if SYMBOL_PREFIX is "_" section name will be "___", if
SYMBOL_PREFIX is "__" section name will be "____" and so on.

I'm a bit confused. I can build a kernel here:
$ make ARCH=blackfin CROSS_COMPILE="bfin-uclinux-" defconfig
*** Default configuration is based on 'BF537-STAMP_defconfig'
$ make ARCH=blackfin CROSS_COMPILE="bfin-uclinux-"
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
  CHK     include/generated/utsrelease.h
  CALL    scripts/
  OBJCOPY arch/blackfin/boot/vmlinux.bin
  GZIP    arch/blackfin/boot/vmlinux.bin.gz
  UIMAGE  arch/blackfin/boot/vmImage.gz
Image Name:   bf537-0.2-2.6.39-rc3-00004-gf26a

Unfortunately I can't make skyeye emulator works to test the obtained
kernel image.
