I mean this part:

#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT
int copy_siginfo_to_user32(struct compat_siginfo __user *to,
const struct kernel_siginfo *from)
#if defined(CONFIG_X86_X32_ABI) || defined(CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION)
{
return __copy_siginfo_to_user32(to, from, in_x32_syscall());
}
int __copy_siginfo_to_user32(struct compat_siginfo __user *to,
const struct kernel_siginfo *from, bool x32_ABI)
#endif
{
...
case SIL_CHLD:
new.si_pid = from->si_pid;
new.si_uid = from->si_uid;
new.si_status = from->si_status;
#ifdef CONFIG_X86_X32_ABI
if (x32_ABI) {
new._sifields._sigchld_x32._utime = from->si_utime;
new._sifields._sigchld_x32._stime = from->si_stime;
} else
#endif
{
new.si_utime = from->si_utime;
new.si_stime = from->si_stime;
}
break;
...
}
#endif

If we have a '548 | 0x40000000' entry pointing to
__x32_compat_sys_procfd_kill, then that will do the right
thing. If you instead try to have x32 call into the native
sys_procfd_kill, then copy_siginfo_to_user() will also have
to know about x32, effectively duplicating that mess above,
unless you want to also change all users of
copy_siginfo_to_user32() to use copy_siginfo_to_user()
and handle all cases in one function.
