Gah, CONFIG_AS_CRC32 gets defined as a preprocessor symbol only so
cannot be used in makefiles. So crc32c-pcl-intel-asm_64.S needs a
"#ifdef CONFIG_AS_CRC32" guard and still be compiled for CONFIG_64BIT,
as it is now. It'll be an empty object for older binutils versions not
supporting the crc32 instruction.

Sorry for the confusion.
