Subject: [PATCH] Explicitly set .crt{i,n} alignment for ARM targets

Clang's assembler behaves differently than GNU as in that it doesn't
automatically set the section alignment according to the selected mode
(ARM or Thumb).

The problem is evident when linking together objects with a mixture of
ARM and Thumb code, at link time the .init and .fini sections may end up
at misaligned addresses (the required alignment is 4 as they contain ARM
code) and cause problems at link or run time.
