Here Andi Kleen expresses a dislike for an amd64 version of a patch
that broke 2.6.9-rc1 on my x86 system:

The patch link:|src/|src/arch|src/arch/x86_64|src/arch/x86_64/kernel|related/arch/x86_64/kernel/entry.S

Also here Andi speaks about the complexity of Linus' fixes and the
problem of porting it to x86-64.

Entire thread:

My guess x86-64 hasn't been looked at since this last time.  You need
to make sure this is the same problem.
