That wasn't my question. What I wanted to know was, if adding
X86_64 to UML's Kconfig.x86 isn't acceptable for some reason,
whether any of the possible alternative forms would be preferred
(all of them should work).

Anyway, I'll wait for Jeff's response on whether adjusting the
UML file is going to be acceptable.

Will you want a re-submission or an incremental fix?
