Armhf dynamic linker path

We really need to push on with getting the loader path for armhf
standardised. The path that was agreed months ago is
but clearly not everybody is using that yet. Dann has just posted an
updated patch for gcc, and we want to get this reviewed / fixed up /
accepted ASAP. Then we may need to backport it to older gcc releases.
This is *important* so that we can help vendors release binaries that
work on any hard-float distribution. For people who have made binaries
that still use the old, broken location /lib/ld-linux.so.3, we can put
symlinks in place *for now* but in the longer term as many distros
switch to multi-arch the symlink is not an acceptable solution.
I'm working on a more complete spec document for armhf to help us with
this kind of thing, but it's not going as smoothly as I'd hoped and I
don't want to wait for that as a blocker on the linker path.
