The problem with that is that you now have two entirely different
code paths. And the 32-bit one will probably get very little testing
and eventually bitrot. We defintively had problems of that sort in
XFS in the past, so my suggestion is to not go down the root of
separate code for 32-bit vs 64-bit unless it makes a real difference
for a real-life workload.
