It's marked as x86-only mostly because that's all I've tried, and I
didn't want to accidentally break builds for other configurations.  I
don't have any ARM hardware for testing the module.  Maybe an emulator
would suffice; I'll have to look into it.

Are you able to try the module with an ARM system?  I'd be happy to
update the patch with your suggested changes if it works.
