toolchain: Bump ARC tools to arc-2016.09-eng005
With this commit we're starting a series of updates of ARC tools. Significantly rewritten arc-2016.03 tools introduced way too many problems highlighted by Buildroot autobuilder. Now in attempt to resolve as many issues as possible by the time final release of arc-2016.09 tools is cut we'll be executing arc-2016.09 series with engineering snapshots like this one. We decided to go this way instead of applying separate patches here and there because ongoing development introduces quite a lot of changes and separate patches are not practical in Buildroot. Moreover this will give us very clean visibility of number of issues we see (hopefully it will decrease over time). One of the important changes introduced in this engineering build is initial set of changes for proper support of PIE on ARC in terms of both building on host and running on ARC target. I expect some PIE-related build breakages to go away and new ones will be treated as the high-priority issues to be fixed ASAP. For now we only update Binutils and GCC while keeping GDB as it is of arc-2016.03 release because there're some issues we'd like to resolve before releasing it to wider audience. So again note this is one of the first engineering builds of arc-2016.09 series and it might have all kinds of breakages, please don't use it for production builds.
