Sorry, these decls are too crufty to go into elf.h as is.
Please fix the formatting, to begin with.
Does a standard or another system use these Elf64_Mips_* names? The struct
and union without typedef names do not match the naming conventions used
for the rest of elf.h.
As to the include/elf.h hack, for which glibc sources do you need these
different macro definitions in effect?
