Some more archaeology. Following a conversation with Phil Blundel, I
took a look at the old releases. In binutils 2.9 there was NO support
for ELF on ARM of any kind. In binutils 2.10 the old ABI was already
that -- old.
So if any release of binutils had the old ABI as its default, it wasn't
an FSF release?
Nick, could this be some GNU PRO legacy?
