//config: bool "Use the end of BSS page"
//config: default n
//config: help
//config: Attempt to reclaim a small unused part of BSS.
//config: Executables have the following parts:
//config: = read-only executable code and constants, also known as "text"
//config: = read-write data
//config: = non-initialized (zeroed on demand) data, also known as "bss"
//config: At link time, "text" is padded to a full page. At runtime, all "text"
//config: pages are mapped RO and executable.
//config: "Data" starts on the next page boundary, but is not padded
//config: to a full page at the end. "Bss" starts wherever "data" ends.
//config: At runtime, "data" pages are mapped RW and they are file-backed
//config: (this includes a small portion of "bss" which may live in the last
//config: partial page of "data").
//config: Pages which are fully in "bss" are mapped to anonymous memory.
//config: "Bss" end is usually not page-aligned. There is an unused space
//config: in the last page. Linker marks its start with the "_end" symbol.
//config: This option will attempt to use that space for bb_common_bufsiz1[]
//config: array. If it fits after _end, it will be used, and COMMON_BUFSIZE
//config: will be enlarged from its guaranteed minimum size of 1 kbyte.
//config: This may require recompilation a second time, since value of _end
//config: is known only after final link.
//config: If you are getting a build error like this:
//config: appletlib.c:(.text.main+0xd): undefined reference to '_end'
//config: disable this option.
