[PATCH 1/2] MIPS: Allow the auxv's elf_platform entry to be set.

The userspace runtime linker uses the elf_platform to find the
libraries optimized for the current CPU archecture variant.  First we
need to allow it to be set to something other than NULL.  Follow-on
patches will set some values for specific CPUs.

GLIBC already does the right thing.  The kernel just needs to supply
good data.
