Re: [golang-dev] Re: Moving Go to a newer NetBSD ABI in the 1.13 dev cycle

Portability: Go right now doesn't take advantage of this portability, at
least from an outsider perspective it looks like it might have been
hastily done to solve an urgent issue for the OSes that need it.

Compatibility: since Go doesn't read C headers, and NetBSD does updates
the functions using macro renaming, it won't use the newer version, so
no benefits here.

It adds some work for a regression in performance.

NetBSD is decently backwards compatibility on syscalls so it's not
needed, although mistakes have happened in the past.
