A locally-compiled kernel works, but only because I set the arch to K7. 
I must admit I haven't been able to build a kernel with 2.4.20 +
2.4.21-rc3 + x86-64.org patches.  I installed all the compilers and
whatnot for biarch, but I get a failure at the very first compile:

cc1: error: code model `kernel' not supported in the 32 bit mode

I'm not sure how the kernel is supposed to be built on this arch.  I'm
x-compiling from i686 but it isn't working out for me, obviously.

Any hints?
