Since effectively there is now the chance to run armv7 code on arm64 even
with 64k page size, it doesn't make sense to block people from enabling
CONFIG_COMPAT on those configurations.

It's good to see this restriction dropped. Can we put a note somewhere
in the actual Kconfig about the binutils requirement so the requirements
are more obvious?
