If we leave the existing elf32-arm.h around for backwards compatibility

that the new changes don't break the old code.
This is a good idea. Then when the 2.16 release is out the
elf32-arm.h and elfarm-oabi.c files could be deleted.
But, if someone complained and we got convinced that we *did* need the
old, old ABI, then we might get stuck trying to make changes in two
places? I like the obsoletion idea, but I'd be happy to live with
elf32-arm.h for one more release, before reorganizing.
