Yes. Linking mixed x86 and x64 object files doesn't work.

To get the most out of x86, compile all your other C files with
-march=native -fomit-frame-pointer, enable -DLUAJIT_CPU_SSE2 and
link LuaJIT statically on x86 (less important for x64).

Yes, sadly that's true on Linux/x64 right now. With some effort I
could bump that up to around 2GB (avoiding MAP_32BIT and resorting
to address probing). But that won't suffice for your use case.
