SubjectRe: [PATCH v7 0/6] Disable compat cruft on ppc64le v7

I guess on PPC64 you have Gigabytes of memory and thousands of bogomips,
hence you focus on bugs.

My main focus usually is kernel size and performance, which makes this
series interesting as well.

Anyway, I was wondering, would it make sense (in a following series, not
in this one) to make it buildable as a module, just like some of binfmt ?
