This patch results in:

Building parisc:a500_defconfig ... failed
--------------
Error log:

by 'arch/parisc/kernel/built-in.a'.  Stop.

Error log:

Indeed, arch/parisc/kernel/binfmt_elf32.o is still listed in Makefile
for 64-bit builds.

$ git grep binfmt_elf32.o arch/parisc/
arch/parisc/kernel/Makefile:obj-$(CONFIG_64BIT) += binfmt_elf32.o sys_parisc32.o signal32.o
