Summary

The MACHINE_ABI and TARGET_ABI variables are used to set the middle of
the target triple (e.g., "-unknown-" or "-gnueabihf-"). The are not set
by any tool in the base system and I've only found the latter mentioned
in one review online. As such, rename them to to MACHINE_TRIPLE_ABI and
TARGET_TRIPLE_ABI to clear the way to use MACHINE_ABI as a suplement to
MACHINE_CPU, etc.

Needed? Is this really something people set?

I doubt it, but maybe there's someone setting them to undermydesk or the like (as always, see https://xkcd.com/1172/ :). Happy to drop this, but in the unlikely event someone is using them it makes the change discoverable.
