This patch is a hopefully less controversial version of a previous patch which
removed the ELF loader from coreboot v3. This adds a Kconfig option
PAYLOAD_ELF_LOADER which builds the loader into v3. In order to make it a
little safer, I changed PAYLOAD_PREPARSE_ELF to PAYLOAD_NO_PREPARSE_ELF and
made that option depend on PAYLOAD_ELF_LOADER so that no one adds an unparsed
ELF without the loader.
One part that was strange to me was that I first tried adding elfboot.o and
archelfboot.o to the beginning of the list of object files. This broke
coreboot. It still finished building, but would not boot on QEMU. I was
surprised that it broke it, but didn't investigate further.
