SPL: tiny-printf: avoid any BSS usage

As printf calls may be executed quite early, we should avoid using any
BSS stored variables, since some boards put BSS in DRAM, which may not
have been initialised yet.
Explicitly mark those "static global" variables as belonging to the
.data section, to keep tiny-printf clear of any BSS usage.
