folder ABI/ ABI/ - 2014-02-06 19:42:22

This directory attempts to document the ABI between the Linux kernel and userspace, and the relative stability of these interfaces. Due to the everchanging nature of Linux, and the differing maturity levels, these interfaces should be used by userspace programs in different ways.
We have four different levels of ABI stability, as shown by the four different subdirectories in this location. Interfaces may change levels of stability according to the rules described below.

Early userspace support
Last update: 2004-12-20 tlh
"Early userspace" is a set of libraries and programs that provide various pieces of functionality that are important enough to be available while a Linux kernel is coming up, but that don't need to be run inside the kernel itself.

Why:
Today, the most extended way to use firmware in the Linux kernel is linking it statically in a header file. Which has political and technical issues:
