infrastructure separation required and we even have a fully
virtualized kernel (vkernel) which demonstratres the infrastructure
separation. Most of the generic kernel code can easily support
a 64 bit architecture. The compiler supports it. It's a project
waiting for someone to take up the ball.
Note that Noah Yan has been working on an AMD64 port. Some stuff is
already committed, and last time I checked, he had about 328KB of
uncommitted patches in his git repository
He doesn't seem to have much time at the moment but said he'll return to
it as soon as the stuff he's occupied with has settled down a bit.
