GCC unescapes escaped string section names while Clang does not. Because
__section uses the `#` stringification operator for the section name, it
doesn't need to be escaped.

Instead, we should:
1. Prefer __section(.section_name_no_quotes).
2. Only use __attribute__((__section__(".section"))) when creating the
section name via C preprocessor (see the definition of __define_initcall
in arch/um/include/shared/init.h).

This antipattern was found with:
$ grep -e __section\(\" -e __section__\(\" -r
