Thanks for the heads up.  We actually wanted to get a few things upstream
before a release, as our port got merged while still being a bit of a work in
progress.  We've submitted a patch set

that we think is sufficient to do a proper release with (ie, maintaining ABI
compatibility forever).  I don't want to cause too much trouble (and I
definitely don't want to hold up a release), but I really don't want to support
a bad set of ABI flags or relocations -- that would be a mess.  Sorry if this
causes trouble!  We'd really just like to get a sane port before anything gets

I'd also like to thank both Kito and Kuan-Lin, as without their help we would
never have been able to get things in as good of a shape as they currently are.
