You're not going to be able to do it very easily. The only way I can
think of achieving it would be to split the module area into one
chunk for text, one chunk for write-rare and one chunk for data.

I still think that using domains is a mistake for this - it's a good
solution for things that are contiguous and big (like userspace), but
not for small amounts of data (like module sections.)
