Well, the topic has been beaten to death here, so you don't really need to illuminate me -- it's only due to this popular request I've implemented the ability to do 32-bit builds for 64-bit kernel.

I know

I just wonder why people insisting on such a setup don't actually contribute some code to do that cleanly and keep switching between hacks as they stop working one by one...
Because they hope that if they annoy you enough, you'll do it yourself ;-)
