PowerLinux is shifting to Little Endian with a new ABI (ELFv2). Upstream libffi includes support for the new ABI. What is the recommended method to merge support into CPython? Will CPython update the base libffi or _ctypes/libffi.diff should be updated?

libffi was updated to v3.1 in issue22176. This release adds support for the Linux AArch64 and POWERPC ELF ABIv2 little endian architectures.

Can we close this and issue22176 then?
