 In particular when in doubt please refer to ELF standards which state 
"EF_" is the prefix for processor-specific flags in "e_flags" in the ELF 
file header; similarly with "EM_" for "e_machine" and "ET_" for "e_type" 
-- you should see the pattern.  There is no mention of the "E_" prefix in 
the standards.
