Re: Embellishing fbsd_* emulations


All of the header is zeroed in bfd_elf_mkobject, so don't bother here.

	* elf.c (prep_headers): Don't zero EI_OSABI, EI_ABIVERSION or
	header pad.

Besides removing some redundant code, this allows people who want to
do weird things with EI_OSABI to make changes any time after ld opens
the output file.
