Won't this cause BTI to be forced off for static binaries?

Perhaps this should be (has_interp == is_interp), as for
arch_elf_adjust_prot().  Seems gross though, since has_interp would
become useless after the next patch.  If there's no sensible way to
keep this bisectable, perhaps the patches can be merged instead.

(has_interp should probably also go away for arch_elf_adjust_prot() --
see my comments on the next patch).

(Hmm, this actually looks a bit cleaner than just clobbering
elf_property_phdata with the interpreter properties as was done
previously.)

Looks like a sensible change, modulo my comments above.

You may want to Cc Yu-cheng Yu <yu-cheng.yu@intel.com> when reposting,
since this would affect his patches (trivially though).
