All this does is put "CONFIG_BINFMT_IRIX is not set" into the
config files so that when switching dual-endian systems from LE
to BE this will default to "n" instead of "y".
The main problem with this is that, in general, there is no
need/desire to have CONFIG_BINFMT_IRIX included just because
the kernel is BE. Rather than being forced to disable this,
I think the default should be off.
In some older kernels, it this causes compile errors, but that
problem doesn't seam to exit in the latest 2.4 tree.
I tested this with menuconfig and xconfig.
I'm not an expert in all the subtle dependencies issues with
the config.in files so there may be a better way do to this.
