Subject[PATCH 15/30] x32: Add a thread flag for x32 processes
Date
From: "H. Peter Anvin" <hpa@zytor.com>

An x32 process is *almost* the same thing as a 64-bit process with a
32-bit address limit, but there are a few minor differences -- in
particular core dumps are 32 bits and signal handling is different.
