segname   SEGMENT COMMON

Causes the linker to overlap all segments having the same segment name
at the same address, so that the instructions and data addresses in
each such segment are offset from a common starting address.

Notes:     In the overlapping structure that results from the
COMMON combine type, if data are declared in two or more
places with the same name, the most recent declaration
replaces all earlier declarations.

The length of the new overlapped segment is the length
of the longest segment with the COMMON combine type.

If no combine type is specified, the segment is not
combined with any other segments.
