Remove a.out interpreter support in ELF loader
Following the deprecation schedule the a.out ELF interpreter support is removed now with this patch. a.out ELF interpreters were an transition feature for moving a.out systems to ELF, but they're unlikely to be still needed. Pure a.out systems will still work of course. This allows to simplify the hairy ELF loader.
