Since this is coming up so late in the merge window, I'm inclined to
take the simple path while Bernard makes a complete solution
here. What do you think Arnd?

Subject: [PATCH] RMDA/siw: Require a 64 bit arch

The new siw driver fails to build on i386 with

drivers/infiniband/sw/siw/siw_qp.c:1025:3: error: invalid output size for constraint '+q'
smp_store_mb(*cq->notify, SIW_NOTIFY_NOT);

As it is using 64 bit values with the smp_store_mb.

Since the entire scheme here seems questionable, and we are in the merge
window, fix the compile failures by disabling 32 bit support on this
driver.

A proper fix will be reviewed post merge window.
