I'm sure this has been discussed already...

The Linux kernel currently uses among other things, -Wa,-32,-mgp64.  The
point is to use 32-bit ELF and 64-bit instructions.  But nowadays binutils
requires that the ABI explicitly match the width of GP registers.

Can gas still do ELF32 in with 64-bit registers?  If so, what the heck is
the command-line magic?
