    hurd: Rework sbrk
    Making the brk start exactly at the end of the main application binary was
    requiring to get it through the _end symbol, which does not work any more
    with recent toolchains, and actually produces in a confusing
    external _end symbol that produces odd results, see
    Trying to do so is quite outdated anyway with the tendency for address
    Using _end was also allowing to include the main binary data within
    the RLIMIT_DATA, but this also seems outdated with dynamic library
    loading, and nowadays' memory consumption via malloc and mmap rather than
    statically-allocated data.
    This adds a BRK_START macro in <vm_param.h> that just tells where we
    want to start the brk, and thus removes the _end symbol.
    * sysdeps/mach/hurd/i386/vm_param.h: New file.
    * sysdeps/mach/hurd/brk.c: Use BRK_START as brk start instead of _end.
    Also ignore __data_start.
    * hurd/Versions: Remove _end symbol.
    * sysdeps/mach/hurd/i386/libc.abilist: Remove _end symbol.
