/* Acorn's RISC-iX has a wacky way of initialising the position of the heap.
* There is a little table in crt0.o that is filled at link time with
* the min and current brk positions, among other things. When start()
* runs, it copies the table to where these parameters live during
* execution. This data is in text space, so it cannot be modified here
* before saving the executable, so the data is written manually. In
* addition, the table does not have a label, and the nearest accessable
* label (mcount) is not prefixed with a '_', thus making it inaccessable
* from within C programs. To overcome this, emacs's executable is passed
* through the command 'nm %s | fgrep mcount' into a pipe, and the
* resultant output is then used to find the address of 'mcount'. As far as
* is possible to determine, in RISC-iX releases prior to 1.2, the negative
* offset of the table from mcount is 0x2c, whereas from 1.2 onwards it is
* 0x30. bss_end has been rounded up to page boundary. This solution is
* based on suggestions made by Kevin Welton and Steve Hunt of Acorn, and
* avoids the need for a custom version of crt0.o for emacs which has its
* table in data space.
