SubjectPATCH: Use .incbin to incorporate binary files.
The Linux binutils 2.11.90.0.23 released on 2001-07-14 introduced
a new feature, .incbin, which allows you to include a set of binary
data at a given point in the assembly. It is better than

# ld -r --format binary --oformat ...

since it will set appropriate bits in the ELF header. Here is a patch
against 2.5.70 to use .incbin.
