[patch] Implement __cxa_atexit

The attached patch implements __cxa_atexit and __cxa_finalize.

As the name suggests these are used by C++ code to register static object 
destructors. They are documented in section 3.3.5 of the C++ ABI 

Despite this they are generally provided by the C library, not the C++ runtime 

I basically took the exitsing atexit/on_exit implementation, broke it out into 
separate files, and added the extra _dso_handle field. I also modified the 
_REENT_SMALL case to allow more than 32 handlers to be registered.

Tested with cross to arm-none-elf.
