Hello,

why do we attempt to compile the kernel with 32-bit GAS abi and 64-bit GCC
abi? Is it because the module loader is broken and supports only 32-bit
ELFs? Then what about machines which load their kernels at weird 64-bit
addresses, like 0xa800000020004000 (Octane)?

I have changed it to 64-bit abi in my Octane kernel, because it won't even
compile otherwise. I've got gcc 3.3.2, gas 2.14.
