Hi Wolfgang,

the attached patch (against CVS 2004-01-08) fixes the rest of the ARM
stuff I had in the pipe.

In particular, the abort-stack is now set up in the correct RAM area
(which I had neglected in my previous patches), and the BSS is zeroed
out as it should be (which most previous ARM implementations had

Furthermore, the magic variables 'armboot_end' and 'armboot_end_data'
of the linker scripts are replaced by '__bss_start' and '_end', resp.,
which is a further step to eliminate unnecessary differences between
the implementation of the CPU architectures.

Compilation tested with MAKEALL arm, functionality only tested on my
PXA-based board.

   Fix the ARM memory layout.
