I don't have x32 setup on my machine.  AFAICS, elf_prstatusx32 is exactly
like elf_prstatus32, except it takes a 64-bit regset.
Given gdbarch_ptr_bit==32 on x32, and:

      else if (gdbarch_ptr_bit (data->gdbarch) == 64)
	data->note_data = elfcore_write_linux_prstatus64 (data->obfd,
	data->note_data = elfcore_write_linux_prstatus32 (data->obfd,

elfcore_write_linux_prstatus32 should be reached.  Other than that,
I have no idea (other than installing the stop gap on x32 too).
