We have been thru this several times. It was finally agreed upon that a
platform could set EI_OSABI to non-SVR4 if they liked. But that setting
it _could_ mean standard ELF tools could not properly process the file.
FreeBSD/arm will also set EI_OSABI to ELFOSABI_FREEBSD as all FreeBSD

Binutils should not be messing with a non-0 value. And will upset us on
FreeBSD if Binutils starts to.
