I am synchronizing the newlib/libc/sys/arm with libgloss/arm.
The arm.h and crt0.S have already been synced, here comes this patch
finishing the work.

It is basically straight forward copying from libgloss/arm to
As for the changes of newlib/libc/sys/arm itself, it includes:
1, synchronize the implementation of existing functions from libgloss, most
in syscalls.c;
2, add posix library functions in libc/sys/libcfunc.c by copying it from
libgloss, such as clock/isatty, etc.;
3, reorganize the source files, for example, spilt _exit.c/_kill.c from
syscalls.c as libgloss;
4, keep aeabi_atexit.c;
5, minor code changes...

I tested it by configuring newlib with “--enable-newlib-supplied-syscalls”
and building newlib
for various arm targets successfully.

Is it OK?
