Subject: musl: unusable on mipsel, mips64el: mipsel-linux-gnu-gcc: unrecognised
 command-line option '-EL'

Hi musl maintainers,

waldi indeed provided a fix for this bug forgot to Cc me, so I missed
it until now. I tested this:

(sid_mips64el-dchroot)tg@...rlin:~$ sh -x $(which musl-gcc) hello.c
+ exec mips64el-linux-gnuabi64-gcc hello.c -specs /usr/lib/mips64el-linux-musl/musl-gcc.specs
mips64el-linux-gnuabi64-gcc: error: unrecognized command-line option '-EL'
(sid_mips64el-dchroot)tg@...rlin:~$ mips64el-linux-gnuabi64-gcc hello.c -specs ~/musl-gcc.specs
(sid_mips64el-dchroot)tg@...rlin:~$ ./a.out

This change (to tools/ in the source tree) probably
makes sense on all architectures, so perhaps do that even. Upstream
should also consider including this and check which of the original
specs need not be removed and can be kept like this.
