Blackfin arch: move the init sections to the end of memory to help decrease memory fragementation
move the init sections to the end of memory, so that after they are free, run time memory is all continugous - this should help decrease memory fragementation. When doing this, we also pack some of the other sections a little closer together, to make sure we don't waste memory. To make this happen, we need to rename the .data.init_task section to .init_task.data, so it doesn't get picked up by the linker script glob.
