OABI is older than year 2000, and the kernel docs say not to enable it.
It also breaks seccomp.
I doubt that people have it enabled, and thus would have trouble reproducing
our stuff.  Since this only affects the syscall interface and since also our
ELF headers specify EABI, I would just change the syscalls to EABI:
Just put the syscall number into r7 and use svc 0.

I'd do it myself but I don't see what libc the gcc 2.95 we built has been
Is it ours?
If so, how come it then uses svc 90000... in the first place? 
We don't do that.

Or is it using glibc ?

How do I build that gcc on novena?  Where would the syscall headers that
I could change be?
