Subject[PATCH 11/14] powerpc: Use macros for .data.page_aligned section.
Date
.data.page_aligned should not need a separate output section, so as
part of this cleanup I moved into the .data output section in the
linker scripts in order to eliminate unnecessary references to the
section name.

Note that this change moves the page-aligned data inside _edata.
Since it _is_ data, I suspect having page-aligned data outside _edata
was a bug. Please comment if it is not.
