Or we could get TIF_32BIT also defined for x86 (same value of
 TIF_ADDR32) and check for it instead. i.e.

...
#if defined(CONFIG_64BIT) && defined(TIF_32BIT)
	if (test_thread_flag(TIF_32BIT))
... 

which is also uglier and keeps adding unecessary complexity to a very
simple task. At this point, I think we just should give up on trying
this via prctl(2) and do it via /proc/<pid>/status instead.
