  Strip a few more instructions from crt0-minrt.S:
  - Remove "halt" and rely on the infinite loop after main()'s return.
  - Remove main()'s argc and argv argument initialization.  Host loader
    does not set them, and typical firmware does not use them, either.
  - Remove the __dso_handle symbol.

This should be safe because the default crt0.S is fully standards
compliant.  Whereas crt0-minrt.S has been documented from the beginning
to intentionally miss features in order to reduce firmware size, while
still enabling typical PRU firmware to operate.
