I've actually thought about this a bit.  We can't really put the ABI
handling into the targets easily; the targets are in Basic, and
therefore aren't allowed to know about the type system.  I think the
most straightforward thing to do is to add a "CallGenStyle" flag to
the TargetInfo (so X86 would have the "X86" call style, X86-64 would
have the "X86-64" call style, etc.).  Then, the actual ABI code ends
up in CodeGen.  This way, we get the most flexibility for the initial

The downside of this approach, of course, is that adding a new target
will involve modifying CodeGen; however, I don't it's a good idea to
try to abstract out the rules before we have implementations for a few
distinct targets.
