Apart from a few comments I've made, I would also like to see non-empty
commit logs and long line wrapping (both in commit logs and
Documentation/). Otherwise, the patches look fine.

So what are the next steps? Are the glibc folk ok with the ILP32 Linux
ABI? On the kernel side, what I would like to see:

1. LTP results (in all combinations of AArch32, LP64, ILP32, big and
   little endian)
2. A way for us to reproduce the ILP32 tests - at which point could we
   get a toolchain? Ideally a filesystem as well, though maybe we could
   just use a busybox in the meantime.
