The general format of ELF notes is as follows.
Offsets and lengths are bytes or (parenthetical references) to the

The GNU project and cooperating development efforts (including the
Linux community) use note type 1 and a vendor name string of "GNU"
for a note descriptor that indicates ABI requirements. The note data
is four 32-bit words. The first of these is an operating system
number (0=Linux, 1=Hurd, 2=Solaris, ...) and the remaining three
identify the earliest release of that OS that supports this ABI.
