RISC-V Multilib

As riscv has a few ABIs the multilib story it a bit complicated as well.

Gentoo will use a multilib compatible LIBDIR layout for both multilib and non-multilib profiles.

TODO: add details on what other distros do

rv64gc

This is the 64bit architecture (rv64) with extensions imadfc (i.e., g is a shorthand for imadf). It supports 2 ABIs, lp64 (softfloat) and lp64d (hardfloat double).

The gcc default is

-march=rv64gc -mabi=lp64d

Our multilib structure follows the guidelines as implemented in GCC:

# from profiles/arch/riscv/rv64gc/make.defaults

# Library directories
LIBDIR_lp64d="lib64/lp64d"
LIBDIR_lp64="lib64/lp64"
SYMLINK_LIB="no"

# Flags for lp64d
CFLAGS_lp64d="-mabi=lp64d"

# Flags for lp64
CFLAGS_lp64="-mabi=lp64"

rv32i

This is the 32bit architecture, which is not supported by glibc yet (but will be soon).
