I was waiting for consensus on the ABI documentation before reviewing the 
final patches.  Have there been public statements from GCC / LLVM / ICC 
maintainers agreeing that the proposed ABI documentation describes how 
they intend to interpret the OpenMP pragmas on x86_64?  If not, you need 
to work on pushing things to consensus in those communities.
