I built all BSPs with the attached patch to check if the RTEMS linker 
set descriptions in the linker command file are all right. I am now 
quite confident that all issues are fixed and no BSP is broken due to 
this change.

Some BSPs (e.g. bfin) place the read-write data before the read-only 
data. I checked them by hand.

Some PowerPCs have a general linker error unrelated to the linker sets.
