[Buildroot] Recurrent Blackfin build failure on icu

Hi Thomas,

For historic reasons, Blackfin GNU toolchain generate assembly symbols
with the prefix '_'. For example: _uconvmsg_dat and _icudt48_dat .
But, the pkgdata tool in icu doesn't generate assembly file
uconvmsg_dat.s and icudt48l_dat.s in this way when Blackfin GNU
toolchain is used. What do you think is a better way to fix it?

/buildroot/output/build/host-icu- -p
uconvmsg -O pkgdata.inc -m static -s uconvmsg -d uconvmsg -T uconvmsg

.globl uconvmsg_dat
        .section .note.GNU-stack,"",%progbits
        .section .rodata
        .align 8
        .type uconvmsg_dat,%object

In addition, I am fine to receive the test log by this email.
