    Enable return code with semi-hosting SYS_EXIT_EXTENDED
    The _exit function currently passes -1 as a "sig" to the _kill function as an
    invalid signal number so that _kill can distinguish between an abort and a
    standard exit.
    For boards using the SYS_EXIT_EXTENDED semi-hosting operation to return a
    status code, this means that the "status" paramter to _exit is ignored and the
    return code is always -1.
    This patch puts shared code between _kill and _exit into a new function
    _kill_shared that takes the semi-hosting "reason" to use (if semi-hosting is
    available) as an argument.
    For semi-hosting _kill_shared provides that "reason".
    Without the "sig" argument being used to distinguish between a normal and
    abnormal exit, the _exit function can provide the return code to be used if the
    SYS_EXIT_EXTENDED operation is available.
    Hence the exit code can be returned.
