 libdl: Add powerpc large memory and small data support.

 - Add support for architecure sections that can be handled by the
   architecture back end.

 - Add trampoline/fixup support for PowerPC. This means the PowerPC
   now supports large memory loading of applications.

 - Add a bit allocator to manage small block based regions of memory.

 - Add small data (sdata/sbss) support for the PowerPC. The support
   makes the linker allocated small data region of memory a global
   resource available to libdl loaded object files.
