Not enabling it on 32-bit was a conscious decision for the simple reason
that with the current DIMM sizes, you can have 1 or 2 DIMMs tops which
you can use on 32-bit and having a fat driver mapping memory errors to
DIMMs in that case does seem like a waste of time, energy, resources...
you name it.

I guess I'll add a note about this in the Kconfig text because I keep
getting patches about this once every couple of months :-)
