[Libguestfs] [PATCH] febootstrap-supermin-helper: Replace objcopy call for embedding init binary



objcopy needs "output-target" and "binary-architecture" parameters
which makes it necessary to keep a list of known architectures.

The bin2s.pl script generates input for the GNU assembler which should
produce an object file that is equivalent to that produced by objcopy.

I have successfully tested the change on an amd64 Debian/unstable system.
