+Select the FDPIC ABI, which uses function descriptors to represent
+pointers to functions.  When the compiler is configured for
+@code{arm-*-uclinuxfdpiceabi} targets, this option is on by default
+and implies @option{-fPIE} if none of the PIC/PIE-related options is
+provided.  On other targets, it only enables the FDPIC-specific code
+generation features, and the user should explicitly provide the
+PIC/PIE-related options as needed.
+
+The opposite @option{-mno-fdpic} option is useful (and required) to
+build the Linux kernel using the same (@code{arm-*-uclinuxfdpiceabi})
+toolchain as the one used to build the userland programs.
