bpfilter_umh is built for the default machine bit of the compiler,
which may not match to the bit size of the kernel.

This happens in the scenario below:

You can use biarch GCC that defaults to 64-bit for building the 32-bit
kernel. In this case, Kbuild passes -m32 to teach the compiler to
produce 32-bit kernel space objects. However, it is missing when
building bpfilter_umh. It is built as a 64-bit ELF, and then embedded
into the 32-bit kernel.

The 32-bit kernel and 64-bit umh is a bad combination.

In theory, we can have 32-bit umh running on 64-bit kernel, but we do
not have a good reason to support such a usecase.

The best is to match the bit size between them.

Pass -m32 or -m64 to the umh build command if it is found in
$(KBUILD_CFLAGS). Evaluate CC_CAN_LINK against the kernel bit-size.
