Shouldn't the ibcs2 part of this name change as well? If I understand
correctly, IBCS == _Intel_ Binary Compatibility Standard, rev. 2, and is
a standard ABI for SVRx on Intel. Thus, if this is to be generalized to
more architectures, perhaps this should be svrx_sysmachine... (where on
i386 it would in fact be an implementation of the IBCS2)?
Or am I missing something (very possible)? My main interest stems from
a back-burner desire to get A/UX (svr2) emulation on mac68k at least
partially working, now that we have some MI COFF goo, and that is
probably able to benefit from this code, but is certainly not IBCS...
