[Intel-wired-lan] [RFC PATCH] i40e: Build for 64-bit targets only

i40e now uses cmpxchg64(), which only works on a 64-bit (or non-SMP)
system.  (It is currently defined for many 32-bit SMP configurations,
but not correctly!)  It seems reasonable to expect that 40G hardware
is not used on 32-bit systems.

Fixes: 841c950d67c6 ("i40e/i40evf: use cmpxchg64 when updating private ...")

I specifically found a build failure on 32-bit parisc:
