I mean unify in sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux (or .../generic if inappropriate 
for the main sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux), for all architectures, both 
existing and new, with conditionals based on logical features of the 
architectures.  If any architecture has its own implementation, it should 
only be old architectures with their special peculiarities.

I'm not aware of an analogue, although GCC's contrib/ 
may well be helpful for some issues.
