Okay, I just added a secondary linker config for overlays on the C64
called 'c64-overlay.cfg' following the "single linker session"
approach. Additionally I added an 'overlaydemo.c' sample program
showing how to use it.

- Docs are missing so far
- Other targets are missing (at least the Apple2 will follow pretty soon)

As the linker config can't "know" how many overlays are desired it
just assumes 9 overlays and produces files "%O.1" ... "%O.9". The
corresponding segments are optional but all nine output files are
always generated. I personally would like to see ld65 to create only
non-empty files.

However I presume that there are specific reasons for ld65
creating/keeping empty files. In that case maybe an 'optional'
attribute for memory areas would make sense...

the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
