So I committed a sligthly modified fix.  I think dreamcast needs this
fix too.   Not sure about coff scripts (does link_set_* work with coff?).


Module Name:    src

Modified Files:
        src/sys/arch/hpcsh/conf: shl-elf.x

Log Message:
Mark 'ram' MEMORY as allocatable instead of explicitly placing
sections into it.  This also ensures that sections, not mentioned in
the linker script (currenty - link_set_*), end up in the correct
place.  Otherwise kernel panics very early, trying to access link_set
