64 bit kernel only works with 64 bit drivers. aes-amd64.S is 64 bit code
that can be linked to 64 bit kernel driver or 64 bit userland program. 32
bit kernel only works with 32 bit drivers. aes-x86.S is 32 bit code that can
be linked to 32 bit kernel driver or 32 bit userland program. 64 bit kernel
works with 64 bit and 32 bit userland programs.
