Filling auxv vector as array with index (auxv[i++] = ...) generates terrible
code. "saved_auxv" should be reworked because it is the worst member
of mm_struct by size/usefullness ratio but do it later.

Meanwhile help gcc a little with *auxv++ idiom.

Space savings on x86_64:

	add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 0/1 up/down: 0/-127 (-127)
	Function                                     old     new   delta
	load_elf_binary                             5470    5343    -127
