Nothing is attached to your mail. Right now could you pause work on
*/dl.c: I'm reorganising them to declare more of it as platform
independent and unify handling (ARM dl.c is unnecessarily different from
other versions and forget some of ELF handling)

There are no changes of this kind to mkimage. I only added missing ARM
handling and the functions which now became mkimage-specific were moved
to it.
