Hm... checking the documentation what -N does:

     Set the text and data sections to be readable and writable.
     Also, do not page-align the data segment, and disable linking
     against shared libraries. If the output format supports Unix
     style magic numbers, mark the output as `OMAGIC'. Note: Although
     a writable text section is allowed for PE-COFF targets, it does
     not conform to the format specification published by Microsoft.

Attributes like "readable and writable" don't play a role here, and we
are not using any shared libraries either.

So it must be the "do not page-align the data segment" part - which
indocated that you should adjust your image size assumptions and/or
your linker script.

Best regards,
