Rather than remove debugging names, let's to ahead and move things around!
I've done this once and it worked. We need to fix the .lds for things. 

I have found the debugging names to be useful in the arium context, where 
i can browse memory and look for strings etc. We should be able to print 
these out at some points. 

So move the c_payload to 0xfffe0000 and you'll have tons of room. So why 
not do that? 

Please don't remove the debugging names, the gain is very small and I 
think that would be a mistake.
