The eabi-agps binary I have _has_ been compiled by GL with an OE-built
toolchain I gave them. Alas, it still doesn't work and there could be a ton of
reasons for that (different EABI/OABI alignment, attribute packing,
maybe recompile everything, used the wrong CFLAGS, etc. etc.).
GL has no intention to look further into this issue, so we either use
the OABI one or find out what's wrong with the EABI one.

Binaries... you know *sigh*
