What about building x32 off ia32 compatibility? There would be no kernel changes, but just compiler changes to use the additional registers. You may even be able to use ia32 or x32 libraries interchangeably if you're not passing by register.

1. Open wikipedia. Read.
2. Try to pretend you never asked this question.

Perhaps then you'll be considered seriously in some future architecture dispute.

Your worst yet, and for me your last

Khim, you have exceeded your usual levels of hostility and brashness with this comment, and so I have added you to my filter. (I mention this as a reminder to others: My Account -> Comment Filtering.)

Your response here is beyond rude: it is poisonous. You should realise that with more time and attention someone might be able to explain the misconception, help others and avoid insulting anyone.

Please stop treating LWN as your inbox: post less often, and more thoughtfully. For me, you have become a spammer.
