[rtems] Tweaks to sys/features.h

Wouldn't it be better to define _POSIX_SHARED_MEMORY_OBJECTS with value
-1 than to have it not defined?  That way it is known at compile time
that there is no support, rather than needing to wait for runtime for a
sysconf() call.

Hi again,

another RTEMS specific newlib patch, we'd like to see merged into

This patch address 2 issue with sys/features.h:
* POSIX/SUSv3 mandates _POSIX_MONOTONIC_CLOCK to be set to -1, 0 or
200112L. RTEMS supports _POSIX_MONOTONIC_CLOCK but doesn't support
sysconf(), so it must be set 200112L.

* RTEMS doesn't support _POSIX_SHARED_MEMORY_OBJECTS. The setting having
been used so far was wrong.
