Nick, Linus: shouldn't we just simply go for no stringifying at all,
i.e. changing it to:

#define __section(S) __attribute__((__section__(S)))

That way we can handle both easy things like:

__section("foo")

as well as the mentioned:

__section(".initcall" level ".init")

that we couldn't do before.

Both GCC and Clang give the same result and it is also easier to
reason about it.

Cheers,
Miguel
