[PATCH] Resurrect ns32k

Hi All,

I am interested in the old National Semiconductor ns32k architecture and
saw that ns32k has been moved into the obsolete list in binutils-2.28.
"Support will be REMOVED in the next major release of BINUTILS, unless a
maintainer comes forward."

I'd like that to not happen.

Although the support for ns32k is not perfect, there's a lot of good
stuff there that I don't want to see removed.  I'm stepping up to keep
it alive.  My hope is to eventually improve ns32k support and fix some
of the bugs and deficiencies I've seen using it so far.

I think an important first step is to remove it from the disabled list.

I'm looking forward to any comments and suggestions you have for me.
