I am familiar with these. In a previous job, I did some work on them.
My first attempt was to just specify these, but I got to much "that's not
the way we do it in Linux" pushback, so I decided that we would just have to
create a similar document, referencing those where appropriate. The list of
exceptions against the ABI was turning out to be rather lengthy also.
I think the TIS ELF spec is nearly identical to what is in the gABI/psABI
documents. There is a draft of something newer that contains some of the
new information, but I would prefer a final spec.
