Hi Romain,

First of all, thanks for the great feedback.

I've been thinking about this. At first it seemed like a good idea, but
then I realised that Cortex-M3 is not really an architecture, but 
a variant.

Introducing BR2_ARCH_HAS_ELF_SUPPORT would mean selecting it on almost each
architecture and almost each of the ARM variants, except Cortex-M3.

So, it seems like it would be an elegant way of doing this, but I'm not sure
it's worth such an invasive change.
