 * vdsomunge - Host program which produces a shared object
 * architecturally specified to be usable by both soft- and hard-float
 * programs.
 * The Procedure Call Standard for the ARM Architecture (ARM IHI
 * 0042E) says:
 *	6.4.1 VFP and Base Standard Compatibility
 *	Code compiled for the VFP calling standard is compatible with
 *	the base standard (and vice-versa) if no floating-point or
 *	containerized vector arguments or results are used.
 * And ELF for the ARM Architecture (ARM IHI 0044E) (Table 4-2) says:
 *	If both EF_ARM_ABI_FLOAT_XXXX bits are clear, conformance to the
 *	base procedure-call standard is implied.
 * The VDSO is built with -msoft-float, as with the rest of the ARM
 * kernel, and uses no floating point arguments or results.  The build
 * process will produce a shared object that may or may not have the
 * EF_ARM_ABI_FLOAT_SOFT flag set (it seems to depend on the binutils
 * version; binutils starting with 2.24 appears to set it).  The
 * EF_ARM_ABI_FLOAT_HARD flag should definitely not be set, and this
 * program will error out if it is.
 * If the soft-float flag is set, this program clears it.  That's all
 * it does.
