[Xenomai] [PATCH] cobalt: increase default system heap size

On arm64, running the included switchtest program hits the default 
system heap limit of 256k.

The program creates 97 threads, each allocating space on the system heap 
for struct cobalt_thread (3616 bytes on arm64). This adds up to a total 
of 350725 bytes required.

This patch increases the default system heap size to 512k.

         The system heap is used for various internal allocations by
         the Cobalt kernel. The size is expressed in Kilobytes.
