After tracing the binutils source around gas from the error
message, it was found that 32-bit toolchains on 32-bit host cannot
handle 64-bit integer by default configuration (see bfd/bfd-in.h
and integer_constant() in gas/expr.c).

It requires to specify --enable-64-bit-bfd to bfd/configure or add
a hint as below to enable 64-bit integer handling.

So I would like to apply this patch, comment?
