Now you get to have a taste of all the fun of lib/sparcv9 on linux too 8-)

Its unfortunate theres no support for midaway v8plus style ABI on x86-64
that would use the new abi and extra regs but 32bit pointers and that you
cannot get a clean 64bit only system.


P.S.: do not blame me, thanks !

        Humans love to categorize and organize things. We break up time into
        hours, days and years. Everything has to have a name, a history, an
        understanding of it's origins and must be indexed somewhere on Google.
