So looking at 800-arm-bigendian.patch, it would appear
that I need to
1) in config.gcc, have a case $target that detects
 *eabi and sets a TARGET_EABI flag
2) in linux-elf.h, have another #if TARGET_EABI ... #else ... #endif
 which just tags "_eabi" onto all of the other strings, if EABI is active

Does this make sense ?

Or is there an official GCC patch to do this (I have searched!)

Since other people are building ARM EABI versions of gcc, there must
be a patch that they are using which somehow has been omitted
from Buildroot :(
