Add new macros for page-aligned data and bss sections.

This patch is preparation for replacing most uses of
".bss.page_aligned" and ".data.page_aligned" in the kernel with
macros, so that the section name can later be changed without having
to touch a lot of the kernel.

The long-term goal here is to be able to change the kernel's magic
section names to those that are compatible with -ffunction-sections
-fdata-sections.  This requires renaming all magic sections with names
of the form "".
