From LLVM: I got a note that LLVM plans to remove PPC64's V1 abi support; I'm asked about what support there is for the PPC64 little-endian/V2 abi (see forwarded message)

I'm not one of the better people to be responding to the the likes of
the below. So I've forwarded to some folks better able to comment,
and 2 freebsd lists so others can see the note as well.

sfertile at likely does not monitor any FreeBSD lists. So
either direct sends or use of llvm's bug 31716 comments are probably
required for responses.
