Do you mean define it for every arch or define it in a common place so
that all arch can use it?

I did a quick try with the attached patch on two different arch, one of
them (m32r) has the 'abort' defined and the other (frv) was failing due
to lack of abort, and they both built without any warnings or errors.
But I am not sure if 'kernel/exit.c' is the right place for it.
Any suggestion?
