It's the default nowadays, because every use is guarded by these two
things: "the command line argument was not specified" and "the osabi is
0". We never produce objects with an OSABI of 0; we use ELF_OSABI_ARM
(spelling?) instead, which is 'a'.
So the option is effectively the default, even though it isn't!
