Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Re: [RFC] Is there any plan to add ILP32 support for aarch64?

Eh? The 64-bit "STD" instruction can be used in an ELF32 file
on a ppc64 system.

Nothing stops you from putting random instructions in a binary.

This is possible because PPC does not (appear) to know different CPU
modes.

Read about the SF/CM bit in the MSR register.

i586 however, is one. It has a different e_machine field
in the ELF header, for one,

Just like ppc.
