Applied to master, thanks.

However, I wondered about this:


and the BR2_BINFMT_FLAT case. Indeed, if you don't build a
host-binutils and only a target binutils, the version compiled is now
going to be 2.33.1, which is "broken" on BINFMT_FLAT platforms. So I
thought we should keep using 2.32 on those platforms.

But then, in fact, we don't have support for building elf2flt for the
target anyway, so we're not building any useful binutils for the target
for BINFMT_FLAT platforms. So I just left your patch as-is.
