Oh, I agree that a 64-bit kernel makes sense.  I'm just not sure what is
needed to get from where I am now to where I want to be.

There is _much_ interest from our customers for 64-bit linux.  Especially
if the toolchain catches up so that we can have 64-bit userspace.

Anyone have some quick pointers on how to get from here to there?
