What upstream kernel version *has a stable kernel/userspace ABI* for RV32 
and *is stable enough to run the glibc testsuite*?  I'd expect that to go 
in arch_minimum_kernel.

<> and 
<> appear to aim 
to remove legacy stat syscall families from new architectures, so 
requiring them to implement stat functions in terms of statx in userspace.  
The former, in particular, identifies RV32 as an architecture not needing 
backwards compatibility for the old syscalls.

Supposing those patches (that whole 17-patch series) are applied to the 
Linux kernel, what stat syscalls does it provide for RV32 (and RV64) and 
does your glibc port for RV32 properly work with that set of syscalls?
