Move a segment to a new address
This function moves all information to the new address
It fixes up address sensitive information in the kernel
The total effect is equal to reloading the segment to the target address
     ea    - any address within the segment to move
     to    - new segment start address
     flags - combination MFS_... constants
returns: MOVE_SEGM_... error code

long move_segm(long ea, long to, long flags);
