There is no magic except for the tiny elf2flt patch, which for
now is just in the buildroot repo pointed to in the cover letter
(and which I plan to upstream once the kernel support has landed
in Linus' tree). We only support 32-bit code and data address spaces,
but we otherwise use the normal RISC-V ABI, that is 64-bit longs and
pointers.
