mspdebug does not use debug symbols (the ones you enable with the -g
compiler switch), just the plain symbol names that are also used for
linking. However, in the ELF format, each symbol has a type field, and
mspdebug only uses symbols of certain types (object, function, etc.).
You can display the symbol table of an ELF object with "readelf --syms
file.o". Symbols whose type is listed as NOTYPE will be ignored by mspdebug.

If you want an assembler-defined symbol to be visible in mspdebug you
have to declare its type with a directive like ".type my_function,
