x86-32: use brk segment for allocating initial kernel pagetable

Impact: use new interface instead of previous ad hoc implementation

Rather than having special purpose init_pg_table_start/end variables
to delimit the kernel pagetable built by head_32.S, just use the brk
mechanism to extend the bss for the new pagetable.

This patch removes init_pg_table_start/end and pg0, defines __brk_base
(which is page-aligned and immediately follows _end), initializes
the brk region to start there, and uses it for the 32-bit pagetable.
