Is there a big reason to not enable CONFIG_X86_X32 in default kernels?

It doesn't seem to have more downsides than your average kernel feature
(more bloat = slightly more memory used and some potential for bugs),
and making a port, even a second-class one, easier to work with seems
to be worth it.

You do have a point about adding new multilibs instead of multiarch, though.
