    No need to edit the linker script, so if you are not familiar with them and don't want to learn about them from the Assembler Linker and Utilities Guide (and I can completely understand why you wouldn't want to edit linker scripts), then you can use some of the handy features in the compiler to code it in 'C' (or assembly).

    char reserved_space[0x1000] __attribute__((space(prog),noload,address(0x8000))));

    The noload attribute will tell the linker not to actually put anything in that location.
