Initialise EI_OSABI and EI_ABIVERSION fields of e_ident array.

Add ability for backends to process program and section headers after they
have been created.
parent 229cf42b
1999-05-28 Nick Clifton <>
* elf-bfd.h (struct elf_backend_data): Add new field:
* elfxx-target.h (elf_backend_post_process_headers): Define to
NULL if not already defined.
(elfNN_bed): Initialise elf_backend_post_process_headers field.
* elf.c (prep_headers): Set the EI_OSABI and EI_ABIVERSION fields
to zero.
(_bfd_elf_compute_section_file_positions): Call
elf_backend_post_process_headers if defined.

* Check whether getuid and getgid exist.
