[ECOS] Memory map and bss section.

Currently at startup, the hal_zero_bss function zeroes everything from
_bss_start to _end, which is very bad if you try to declare a new region in
the memory map placed after the .bss section.

It should just zeros from _bss_start to _bss_end (that doesn't exist)

By the way, where does the malloc memory pool use is memory ? 
And, in the 386-pc platform does eCos is aware of BIOS or Video memory zones
Shouldn't they be declared in the memory map?
