fix kernel assertion (panic) on arm32 (BeagleBone and others) in frame_reference_add()

The macro PTE_GET_FRAME_ARCH() retrieves a physical frame number from the page table entry. Although the frame_base_addr member of the page table entry structure (pte_t) is declared as an unsigned bit field, due to the integer promotion rules the value is interpreted as a signed integer.

  C99-ยง6.3.1.1: Boolean, characters, and integers
    2: If an int can represent all values of the original type (as restricted by the width, for a bit-field), the value is converted to an int; otherwise, it is converted to an unsigned int. These are called the integer promotions. All other types are unchanged by the integer promotions.

Since the bitwise shift operations in PTE_GET_FRAME_ARCH() and especially in ADDR2PFN() (used by anon_share() in backend_anon.c) are applied on a signed integer, they create a false sign-extended (negative) physical frame number that is then passed to frame_reference_add(). This routine is obviously unable to find a valid physical memory zone for the malformed frame number and hits the assertion. The fix is to explicitly typecast the value in PTE_GET_FRAME_ARCH() as unsigned.

The original panic and stack trace for reference:

Merge GCC port updates

libposix changes
 * unimplemented methods do not abort, they warn instead
 * add pthread.h, no implementation yet
 * speed-up symbol redefinition (objcopy can work with static
   libraries as well)
 * add some functions already implemented in libc to libposix

toolchain changes
 * experimental support for HelenOS-specific toolchain
    * toolchain.sh --helenos-target
    * adds *-helenos*- target, e.g. we can have amd64-helenos-gcc
    * added as another choice to HelenOS.config, updated other scripts
 * added non-root compilation
   * install into PKG/ to be later copied to real root
     (package-like installation)
