Does Clear Linux support running binaries for the x32 ABI?
currently we do not support this; we can certainly look into it,

I'm surprised at some of the conclusions, there is an implication
that this helps garbage collection.... while the golang folks pretty
much see the opposite effect, where 64 pointers help their garbage collector
out a lot versus 32 bit pointers
it's a bit hard to read online ;-)
also wonder how much is a distro effect; if it's easy to run such
benchmarks (still poking at it)... one can run a clear linux
docker instance on ubuntu easily
docker run -it clearlinux
and then inside the docker install a pile of dev tools
swupd bundle-add os-clr-on-clr
and you should have a pretty darn complete system with our full toolchain/etc.
Depending on the benchmark/workload, there's typically [*] a 0 to 10% perf delta
between something like ubuntu and clear linux.
