3.5 mmo backend

The mmo object format is used exclusively together with Professor Donald E. Knuth's educational 64-bit processor MMIX. The simulator mmix which is available at understands this format. That package also includes a combined assembler and linker called mmixal. The mmo format has no advantages feature-wise compared to e.g. ELF. It is a simple non-relocatable object format with no support for archives or debugging information, except for symbol value information and line numbers (which is not yet implemented in BFD). See for more information about MMIX. The ELF format is used for intermediate object files in the BFD implementation.
