add libelf: an ELF binary parser library.

This patch adds a library with a small collection of helper functions
to parse and load elf binaries. The library handles endianess and
elfsize at runtime.

The patch also shuffles around the include files a bit. Now there is
*one* include file holding all the elf structures
(xen/include/public/elfstructs.h) which is included by everyone who
needs them.

It's dead code with this patch only, putting the code into use happens
in followup patches.

1 xen-bugtool
2 ===========
4 The xen-bugtool command line application will collate the Xen dmesg output,
5 details of the hardware configuration of your machine, information about the
6 build of Xen that you are using, plus, if you allow it, various logs.
8 The information collated can either be posted to a Xen Bugzilla bug (this bug
9 must already exist in the system, and you must be a registered user there), or
10 it can be saved as a .tar.bz2 for sending or archiving.
12 The collated logs may contain private information, and if you are at all
13 worried about that, you should not use this tool, or you should explicitly
14 exclude those logs from the archive.
16 xen-bugtool is wholly interactive, so simply run it, and answer the questions.
