ARM: Eliminate decompressor -Dstatic= PIC hack
We used to build decompressors with -Dstatic= to avoid any local data being generated. The problem is that local data generates GOTOFF relocations, which means we can't relocate the data relative to the text segment. Global data, on the other hand, goes through the GOT, and can be relocated anywhere. Unfortunately, with the new decompressors, this presents a problem since they declare static data within functions, and this leads to stack overflow. Fix this by separating out the decompressor code into a separate file, and removing 'static' from BSS data in misc.c. Also, discard the .data section - this means that should we end up with read/write initialized data, the decompressor will fail to link and the problem will be obvious.
