According to gdb, setting dll_end to this is functionally equivalent to
using AllocationBase + RegionSize.  I thought you tried that already.

But, anyway...

I've gotten rid of remove_dll_atexit and implemented Dave's other idea of
specifically calling cxa_atexit when atexit is called from a DLL.  I realize
this morning that this might require some additional tweaking to preserve
the same order of calling but that's easily done.

I'm waiting for approval on a newlib patch before rolling a new snapshot
for this.
