EABI is the new “Embedded” ABI by ARM ltd. EABI is actually a family of ABI’s and one of the “subABIs” is GNU EABI, for Linux. The effective changes for users are:
Floating point performance, with or without an FPU is very much faster, and mixing soft and hardfloat code is possible
- Structure packing is not as painful as it used to be
- More compatibility with various tools (in future - currently linux-elf is well supported)
A more efficient syscall convention
- At present (with gcc-4.1.1) it works with ARMv4t, ARMv5t processors and above, but supporting ARMv4 (e.g., StrongARM) requires toolchain modifications. See “Thumb interworking” below.
