You might be interested in some work i have done [1] to create a 64-bit
kernel for SGI IP28 aka Indigo2 Impact. Don't expect it to be less
broken, it basically does an controlled crash at the very beginning of
kernel initialization.

(The IP28 Firmware doesn't like 32-bit ELF or even ecoff kernels.)

The one who asks about it, i assume. ;-)
