Separation of RTEMS sources and tool chain patches

currently the RTEMS sources contain no reference to the intended tool chain 
versions (Binutils, Newlib, GCC, GDB) and patches for the tools.  This is 
specified elsewhere, for example in the RTEMS tools repository.

Since the RTEMS version is tightly coupled to a particular tool chain version 
(mostly do to interaction with Newlib) it would be beneficial to add a human 
and machine readable tool chain description to the RTEMS sources (for example 
base version plus patches).  One consumer of this description could be the RSB. 
  This would enable automatic builds of a compatible tool chain as part of a 
Git bisect process to find changes causing a regression.
