I can't speak for everyone else, but normally when i'm working on a DPDK 
codebase, there's a whole bunch of stuff that isn't built by default, 
and i normally never bother. So, while working from git repo is 
guaranteed to generate a correct ABI dump, it is *not* guaranteed to 
cover everything, unless the developer takes steps to do otherwise.

As far as i understand, the plan is to make ABI checks part of the 
automation - so the effort of *having* these reference ABI dumps is 
already spent anyway, might as well make them accessible to whoever 
develops DPDK too. And if CDN/connectivity fails - well, so be it, 
either fall back to manual process, or let the automation handle it.
