Actually, empty files are created everywhere.
I do not see any problems whether the target is 32-bit or 64-bit.


Just try allnoconfig, for example.
You can apply the following to debug.


diff --git a/scripts/Makefile.build b/scripts/Makefile.build
index be38198d98b2..9d6b30e50663 100644

$(builtin-target): $(real-obj-y) FORCE
+ @$(if $(real-prereqs),,echo creating empty archive: $@)
$(call if_changed,ar_builtin)

targets += $(builtin-target)
The following are all empty files created from no input.

BTW, your commit 8995ac8702737147115e1c75879a1a2d75627b9e
dates back to 2008.

At that time, thin archive was not used.
