My use-case is packaging GammaRay (https://github.com/KDAB/GammaRay), which 
relies on CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR. Setting it via the cmake command line is of 
course possible, but that didn't look like the "clean" solution.

Right, the usual value of CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR for x86 32bit seems to be far 
from well defined. "i*86" is the most common one I've seen on Linux, so 
BR2_ARCH should be fine there in general.

I'll submit an updated patch that adds qstrip, and that sets the correct arm 
variant as shown in the x265 patch that Bernd mentioned.
