Which just goes to show how little I know about msvc.  Supposedly it's
coff not omf already, but maybe with gratuitous differences from what
everyone else calls coff.

I guess another way to convert would be assemble with gas then get the
disassembly and make a masm file with ".byte" directives, or .long's
maybe for the few external symbol references.  Sounds a bit silly, but
it'd ensure the instruction encodings were what's needed. :)
