No, that's backwards. Maybe it should be depends !64BIT instead.

But I'm really quite confused about something: what's special about
x86 here? Are there really Linux arches (compat or 32-bit native)
that *don't* split arguments like this? Sure, some arches probably
work the same way that x86 used to in which the compiler did the
splitting by magic for us, but that was always a bit of a kludge.
Could this change maybe be made unconditional?
