Patch for limits.h and RTEMS

gcc can build two different versions of limits.h.  If there is a
system limits.h, it builds a limits.h which includes the system one
and then ensures that certain values are set correctly.

gcc checks whether there is a system limits.h by looking in a specific
directory, normally /usr/include.  When building a cross compiler, it
looks in $(tooldir)/sys-include; the user is expected to preinstall
the appropriate header files in that directory.

This works fine, except for a couple of environments which are
normally build in conjunction with gcc.  For these environments,
limits.h does exist, but it is not yet installed in
$(tooldir)/sys-include; it lives in a directory parallel to the gcc
source directory.

The two environments I know of which have this problem are cygwin and
RTEMS.  For cygwin, I fixed the problem over a year ago:

Here is the appropriate patch for RTEMS.  Since gcc includes some
RTEMS configuration information, it should include this as well.
