a) please send all your related patches as a series
b) explain how these changes to shared ABI headers:

1) do not break any architecture, especially mips N32 which is
the MIPS equivalent of x32
2) do not break existing x32 binaries
3) fix existing and future x32 binaries

c) why you suddenly need these changes now and not when the x32 ABI
support was submitted and hopefully heavily tested
