currently we do not support this; we can certainly look into it,
the most complicated factor will be build infrastructure rather
That's true if you want to allow compiling in x32 mode.
It's easier for running x32 binaries (maybe produced on another system):
this requires only that the kernel
contains the given feature (CONFIG_X86_X32).
For example, I regularly build my x32 binaries on Ubuntu (which has
a x32 tool chain and libraries) and can run the (statically
linked) x32 binary on openSUSE boxes (which have no x32 tool chain and
no x32 libraries).
well the flipside argument is one of security attack surface; adding a
new surface for something we don't ship/use ourselves will give the
folks some shivers..... it's a bit of a balance as a result.
