I'll try to take care of them all anyway for the sake of future users
who might have your same problem. The reason I wondered if you need
any of these, though, is that the bits files are basically all for the
sake of interfacing with Linux syscalls. They're wanted/needed for a
libc that runs directly on Linux but I don't know if you'd want to use
them at all for something like NaCl or if it has its own mediation
layer with its own ABI (in which case you'd provide your own versions
to match that ABI).
