[PATCH] *-nacl: fix layout magic for explicit section placement case

This fixes the special layout logic for *-nacl targets in the case
where --section-start or similar is used to place .rodata without
leaving space before it for the headers.  In that case, the special
layout cannot apply and so we just fall back to the default behavior,
where the headers will not appear in any segment.

As this change is isolated to target-specific code for which I am the sole
contributor, I'll commit it in the next day or so if I don't get any
objections.  But I'm interested in any feedback that the BFD savants may
have about the method for detecting this case.

	* elf-nacl.c (segment_nonexecutable_and_has_contents): Renamed to ...
	(segment_eligible_for_headers): ... this.  Take new arguments
	MAXPAGESIZE and SIZEOF_HEADERS.  Return false if the first section's
	start address doesn't leave space for the headers.
	(nacl_modify_segment_map): Update caller.
