I guess the only difference is that compiler-rt tests require
execution of target binaries.
There is platform test logic in cmake/config-ix.cmake that tries
compilation (but not execution) for arm and aarch64 on ARM hosts.
Maybe the easiest fix would be to try both on aarch64 host, and only
32-bit arm on 32-bit arm host?
