[PATCH]Add --style switch to binutils

If people would prefer --style be --demangler, I have no objections.
--style is what is used in H.J. Lu's binutils. Previously, it was
--lang.

There is another switch --demangler which takes the name of a shared
object and an entry point. These are used to dynamically load a
demangler from a shared object.

  { {"demangler", no_argument, NULL, OPTION_DEMANGLER},
      '\0', "DSO:FUNCTION", N_("Set DSO and demangler function"),
TWO_DASHES },

I'm not submitting that patch at this time since it has not been view
favorably in the past.
