    FRV: Fix linkage problems
    Make it possible to use __start_notes and __stop_notes without getting a 
    overflow error from the FRV linker.
    Small variables that would otherwise be in .data or .bss may, depending on 
    arch, be placed in special sections (.sdata or .sbss) that permit single
    instruction references on fixed instruction width machines.
    __start_notes and __stop_notes aren't really char variables, and certainly
    don't refer to data in .data or .bss.  Making them type "void" fools the
    compiler into not assuming anything about them.
