Add CONFIG_SYS_SYM_OFFSETS to support offset symbols

Link symbols as created by the link script can either be absolute or
relative to the text start. This option switches between the two options
so that we can support both.

As we convert architectures over to generic board, we can see if this
option is actually needed, or whether it is possible to unify this feature

This is set by architectures that use offsets for link symbols
instead of absolute values. So bss_start is obtained using an
offset _bss_start_ofs from CONFIG_SYS_TEXT_BASE, rather than
directly. You should not need to touch this setting.
The following definitions that deal with the placement and management
of environment data (variable area); in general, we support the
following configurations:
