[Xen-users] Why the built xen file is 32-bit on 64-bit OS?

Hi all,

Greetings from me!

I am a newbie of Xen. After using default configuration to build Xen
4.6.0 on 64-bit Linux,
I find the generated xen file is 32-bit:

Linux:~/Downloads/xen-4.6.0/xen # file xen
xen: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV),
statically linked, stripped

While the xen-syms file is 64-bit:
Linux:~/Downloads/xen-4.6.0/xen # file xen-syms
xen-syms: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV),
statically linked, not stripped

Why the xen file is 32-bit? Personally, I think it should also be 64-bit.

Thanks very much in advance!

Best Regards
Nan Xiao
