[ This is both 2.6.21 and -stable material ]

During a static link, ld has started putting a .note section in the
.uml.setup.init section.  This has the result that the UML setups
begin with 32 bytes of garbage and UML crashes immediately on boot.

This patch creates a specific .note section for ld to drop this stuff
into.
