You are right.
I got fooled because I still had the binfmt_elf32.o object in my build
directory and so I didn't faced this build error. And even 0-day builds
didn't complained...

[PATCH] parisc: Fix missing binfmt_elf32.o build error

Commit 71d577db01a5 ("parisc: Switch to generic COMPAT_BINFMT_ELF")
removed the binfmt_elf32.c source file, but missed to drop the object
file from list of object files the Makefile too, which then results in a
build error.
