Remove a.out interpreter support in ELF loader



Following the deprecation schedule the a.out ELF interpreter support
is removed now with this patch. a.out ELF interpreters were an transition
feature for moving a.out systems to ELF, but they're unlikely to be still
needed. Pure a.out systems will still work of course. This allows to
simplify the hairy ELF loader.

What: a.out interpreter support for ELF executables
When: 2.6.25
Files: fs/binfmt_elf.c
Why: Using a.out interpreters for ELF executables was a feature for
transition from a.out to ELF. But now it is unlikely to be still
needed anymore and removing it would simplify the hairy ELF
loader code.
