Alright, that raises a couple questions:

I assume from the discussion that the 32-bit support can't be compiled into a module.

If that's true, then how much does it cost? How much bigger is a kernel with it? I get the feeling it's less than 500K or so, a drop in the bucket when you've got 32GB of storage in a typical PC these days.
