8.69. .pushsection name, subsection

This is one of the ELF section stack manipulation directives. The others are .section (refer to Section 8.74 .section name), .subsection (refer to Section 8.85 .subsection name), .popsection (refer to Section 8.64 .popsection), and .previous (refer to Section 8.63 .previous).

This directive is a synonym for .section. It pushes the current section (and subsection) onto the top of the section stack, and then replaces the current section and subsection with name and subsection.
