The three mips ABIs are o32 (fully 32bit), n32 (32bit address space,
64bit register width) and n64 (fully 64bit). n32 traditionally uses
The general problem with this approach is that it doesn't scale beyond
2-3 ABIs, and requires a "native" ABI definition. The multi-arch
approach tries to do better (but needs more work before it can
provide a viable alternative).
