[task #5941 --- ``Linker script for GNU Mach'']

* Makefile.in (kernel.o): Remove `$(systype)-objfiles-prepend' hackery.
* i386/Makefile.in (sysdep.a): Likewise.
* i386/Makerules.in: Likewise.
(LDFLAGS-kernel): Point to the linker script.
* i386/i386at/boothdr.S (_start): Don't put into `.text', but into
`.text.start' instead.
* i386/ldscript: Change to put `.text' at 0x100000 and put
`.text.start' first into `.text'.

* i386/ldscript: New file, copied from `/lib/ldscripts/elf_i386.x' of a
GNU Binutils 2.16.1 installation.
#v-

As I denoted: the linker script is a copy of the main i386 linker script from Binutils and includes lots of stuff we don't need and thus could be cleared out. That's why I'll leave this task open for someone to do that.

GNU Mach should use a linker script instead of the ``place this object file first into .text'' hackery.
