ABI is short for Application Binary Interface, and is a low-level interface
between programs and the operating system [kernel] they run on.
You may have seen API as well - short for Application Programming Interface.
This generally/usually is relevant to programs talking to other programs.
In FreeBSD, if changes to the ABI are deemed necessary, this will generally
serve as a demarcation point between one major version revision and the next
one coming along, e.g 7.x, 8.x, 9.x, and so on.
