In general, yes, the ABI will be the same. Otherwise, we would not be
able to emit code that runs on any x86 without making the compiler a lot
There are special situations where the ABI may change if it depends on
new architecture features, e.g. some of the SIMD stuff depends on
whether you have SSE registers or SSE2 registers, etc.
