Just add "define = yes" to the BSS segment in the linker config, and the
linker will export the symbols __BSS_RUN__, __BSS_LOAD__ and __BSS_SIZE__.

This is true for every other segment as well. If you need the size of the CODE
segment, add "define = yes", and the linker will export __CODE_SIZE__ plus the
others.
