Right, I've revised the patch slightly and committed it.
The main difference is that with a flash of inspiration last night as I
was driving home from work, I realized that there is a simple way to
support the multiple ABI variants and their corresponding tdep files
without having to always link all of them into a single gdb session (you
can do if you want, but it's not required).
The new patch adds a new arm-specific gdbarch registration function
(arm_gdbarch_register_os_abi) to arm-tdep.c, using which the other arm
tdep files can register their ability to handle that ABI variant. ABI
detection is still handled by the common code -- a design decision which I
think is correct, but can be changed at a later date.
It is acceptable for a tdep file to register the ability to handle more
than one abi variant, but it is not acceptable to have more than one tdep
file trying to handle a variant.

* arm-tdep.h (enum arm_abi): New enum.
(struct gdbarch_tdep): New structure.
(LOWEST_PC): Provide a default.
(arm_gdbarch_register_os_abi): Declare new function.
* arm-tdep.c (arm_abi_names): New array.
(process_note_abi_tag_sections): New function.
(get_elfosabi): New function.
(arm_gdbarch_register_os_abi): New function.

support for that ABI has been built in, then call the appropriate
configuration routine. Use gdbarch_num_regs() to get the number
