CONFIG_MIPS32_N32=y but CONFIG_BINFMT_ELF disabled results in the following
linker errors:

arch/mips/built-in.o: In function `elf_core_dump':
binfmt_elfn32.c:(.text+0x23dbc): undefined reference to `elf_core_extra_phdrs'
binfmt_elfn32.c:(.text+0x246e4): undefined reference to `elf_core_extra_data_size'
binfmt_elfn32.c:(.text+0x248d0): undefined reference to `elf_core_write_extra_phdrs'
binfmt_elfn32.c:(.text+0x24ac4): undefined reference to `elf_core_write_extra_data'

CONFIG_MIPS32_O32=y but CONFIG_BINFMT_ELF disabled results in the following
linker errors:

arch/mips/built-in.o: In function `elf_core_dump':
binfmt_elfo32.c:(.text+0x28a04): undefined reference to `elf_core_extra_phdrs'
binfmt_elfo32.c:(.text+0x29330): undefined reference to `elf_core_extra_data_size'
binfmt_elfo32.c:(.text+0x2951c): undefined reference to `elf_core_write_extra_phdrs'
binfmt_elfo32.c:(.text+0x29710): undefined reference to `elf_core_write_extra_data'

This is because binfmt_elfn32 and binfmt_elfo32 are using symbols
from elfcore but for these configurations elfcore will not be built.

Fixed by making elfcore selectable by a separate config symbol which
unlike the current mechanism can also be used from other directories
than kernel/, then having each flavor of ELF that relies on elfcore.o,
select it in Kconfig, including CONFIG_MIPS32_N32 and CONFIG_MIPS32_O32
which fixes this issue.

FWIW this looks good to me,

 Is this for a configuration with native (n64) ELF disabled, but one or 
more compat ELF formats (o32, n32) enabled?  An interesting use case then.

Yes.  Fairly sensible for one of those systems where we only support 64 bit
kernels but don't need a 64 bit userland.
