The only ones that don't are the Freescale 85xx and P10[12]x chips,
which are powerpcspe due to using the e500 core.

All the 83xx and 82xx chips which are still shipping in many current
products are plain old 32bit powerpc.  Also I suspect many users of 64
bit capable freescale chips (e5500 and e6500 cores) are running 32 bit
powerpc since they don't have enough ram to actually really gain anything
from going to 64 bit, and the ppc64 port isn't done yet.  But those
would be a case of running 32 bit on 64 bit.
