Count me as another in favor of Mike's explanation.

Like Mike said, there were a few mistakes already at the top, and IMHO
linux ABI stuff doesn't justify a top-level assignment since in fact
it's a remapping of Linux calls to FreeBSD equivalent calls, not a true
implementation of Linux. So compat.* sounds way more sensible to shim-
like implementations.

Just my 0.02 euro's.
