Default Re: Support for X32 ABI

KDE:

Now run some real life tests, like any Firefox/Chrome/etc www performance benchmarks. Or try to encode a movie using x264 (which is assembly optimized). Or run any games.

We are long after the point when memory consumption concerned anyone.

We'll never arrive to the point when you'll make people adjust their applications for yet another architecture. x86-64 is good enough for anyone. And soon there will be ARM64 with no word about ARM64 with 32bit pointers. x32 is a good optimization experiment, but it will remain this way forever - an experiment with no real life applications.
