Global data reference larger than definition ‘global name’
A global data section reference is larger than the same named global data section with “,INIT”. (This could happen, for example, if an .INCLUDEd file was changed after one module was compiled.) When this occurs, the linker increases the size of the global data section to match the larger of the two, but the data initialization stays the same as the one with the ,INIT. This means the increased size has random data in it, and you cannot assume that it is initialized to anything or that the initialization data is aligned correctly for the larger definition.
