I am using the linaro LAMP image on the Foundation model from ARM, as
described at:

Unfortunately the 32 bit support is not yet in so I am using a
statically built v7 binary for testing. The newer releases of Ubuntu
for AARCH64 are doing better in that respect, I have to give it a try.

Do you have an idea what/where to check for libdw compat support? I
just quickly browsed through the code and found the uses of the
ELFCLASS32/ELFCLASS64 macros interesting.

Do you need testing etc. in order to be able to merge the aarch64
branch? Please let me know!
