Debian EABI arm port name: armel


A few of us are at the Debian Embedded sessions in Extremadura. We
have talked about the new arch name and have reached consensus on
armel, which matches the "naming convention" used in other arch names
in Debian like mipsel, and with the counterpart armeb. One of the
main concerns was the mismatch between armeb being old ABI and armel
being EABI, giving a confusing situation. Lennert at least didn't see
any problem in making armeb EABI in the future, before adding it to
the archive.

I'll be preapring a patch for dpkg, and will include in the next
release if there's no big opposition to this name, which will happen
more or less once the latest dpkg migrates into testing.
