That is how the earlier versions did it, and I thought it ended up
too ugly with lots of runtime checks instead of compile-time checks.
The current version is how I asked it to be done. A slight
variation would be to keep using fs/compat_binfmt_elf.c for one
of the two compat modes (today it is used for aarch32) and have
a separate file include "../../../fs/binfmt_elf.c" for the other
mode (as this patch does for ilp32). I think that is what I asked
for, but there was probably a good reason for having two files
in the same directory. The result is basically the same.
