Enable x32 ABI support in kernel so those who want to try it doesn't need to compile their own kernel. I understand that x32 is not supported by Arch Linux, but this should not harm in any way, and allow running binaries for this ABI.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
core/linux 3.4.9-1 (base)

Steps to reproduce:
1. Try to run x32 binary.
This task depends upon

Any update on this please? I would really like to have it in official kernel, so that I don't have to maintain AURs like linux-x32, virtualbox-modules-x32. Looking forward to see the decisions. Thank you very much.
