Yes, and if we need it for compat: fine. Out of curiosity: why does linux
produce some binaries with ET_DYN and other with ET_EXEC? We only seem
to do ET_EXEC for native binaries.

Anyway: I wonder if we should just do:

int elf_check_header(Elf_Ehdr *eh, bool *is_dyn)

and hardclode ET_EXEC and ET_DYN inside that function, setting *is_dyn
to true if we find ET_DYN.

While breaking the API, we could also move the test for 0 sections inside.
