If a 64-bit kernel is combined with 32-bit userspace, and this is achieved
via a multilib toolchain that defaults to 64-bit with '-m32' in
BR2_TARGET_OPTIMIZATION, the '<cross>-ld' command will still default to
64-bit output.

In this case, packages that use 'ld' directly need to be instructed to use
the correct ABI via the '-m' parameter. 'perf' is one such package.
