Well, I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you submitted documentation for them
too.

We also have some BE patches internally, but obviously they just target LP64
and AArch32 compat. I'd hope to get these out shortly (the current issue is
extensive testing, since we don't have much of a BE userspace).

(nitpick) We used to have an option like this, called
CONFIG_AARCH32_EMULATION, which I think is clearer than CONFIG_ARM64_AARCH32.

Can you elaborate please? I'd much rather we fix broken make rules instead
of botching around the issue by creating new directories.
