Version 3 splits them up, yes. Version 2 will keep ELF.

I'm fine with whatever path is taken to solve it (or if you decide that 
it's not worth the effort, and require coreboot v3). There's a patch out 
there for anyone who needs this kind of setup, after all.

And if that libbfd-change fixes this issue, all the better.
