Added support for X86_64 ELF64:

1. Using ELF64 headers when ELF class is 64-bit.

2. Algorigthm is the same as for ELF32 + several validating:

- separate code for validating ELF64 header

- checking that entry_point is less than 0xffffffff

and so on

3. If ELF class isn't ELF64 then using code for ELF32

That's all.

This does not conform to the standard. Please follow the GNU Coding Standards.

It may encourage more casual development if the people who care about changelog formatting simply reformat submissions to their satisfaction...
