Subject: [PATCH] RX Assembler: Ensure that the internal limit on the number of
 relaxation iterations is not larger that the external limit.

	PR 24464
	* config/tc-rx.h (md_relax_frag): Pass the max_iterations variable
	to the relaxation function.
	* config/tc-rx.c (rx_relax_frag): Add new parameter - the maximum
	number of iterations.  Make sure that our internal iteration limit
	does not exceed this external iteration limit.
