This patch needs more explanation for consideration. I could probably
figure it out from the above link but that's a lot of reading, and a
TL;DR would be really helpful here. If the patch to solve an existing
problem with some supported ABI or is it adding a new ABI? If the
latter, is it mutually compatible for the purposes of calling/linkage?
New ABIs can't just be added without both a name and a justification.
