No, it supports different bfd vectors. These are necessary due to
- RELA instead of REL
- Always 64 bit wide registers
- Combined relocs in n32 (several relocs can sum up for one address,
this is only partially implemented yet)
Furthermore there is little documentation about how 64 bit o64/no-ABI
support works in elf32-mips.c, I don't want to mess it up accidentially.
