[PATCH 1/3] elf: Add some new PowerPC specifc note sections

From: Anshuman Khandual
Date: Wed Apr 02 2014 - 03:04:35 EST

This patch adds four new note sections for transactional memory
and one note section for some miscellaneous registers. This addition
of new elf note sections extends the existing elf ABI without affecting
it in any manner.
