Ok, I forgot about this, I've tried to convince s390x folks to move it
to /lib64/ld64.so.1 many years ago, but that just didn't happen, so
/lib/ld64.so.1 is just a symlink to /lib64/ld64.so.1.
Upstream glibc binaries use /lib64/ld64.so.1 as their dynamic linker,
while all other packages use /lib/ld64.so.1 as that is hardcoded in gcc.
That is an argument that perhaps /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3 could be
acceptable too, as it would follow the s390x model, I wouldn't be terribly
happy about that, but I could live with that.
