Yeah, it is a bit ad-hoc. I guess I can add an arch_has_decoder()
wrapper which each arch can define. That would be cleaner.

Yeah, the moment something starts using it, it is ABI. The good thing
about it is, though, that it can get stuff appended to it, just like
tracepoints get fields added. And tools should be able to handle parsing
appended lines fine. Removing lines OTOH is always problematic. But
we'll make that append-only.
