Actually this is not possible even in theory, at least, not on Fedora
or RHEL where we use 64K page size on aarch64 vs 4K page size on
armv7.  (It might work on SUSE & Debian, which uses 4K pages on both,
and where, especially for SUSE, they actually use and test running 32
bit binaries).

I will remove this comment.
