Setup VBAR_EL3 incrementally
This patch ensures that VBAR_EL3 points to the simple stack-less 'early_exceptions' when the C runtime stack is not correctly setup to use the more complex 'runtime_exceptions'. It is initialised to 'runtime_exceptions' once this is done. This patch also moves all exception vectors into a '.vectors' section and modifies linker scripts to place all such sections together. This will minimize space wastage from alignment restrictions. Change-Id: I8c3e596ea3412c8bd582af9e8d622bb1cb2e049d
