I have a running 64-bit Debian-built kernel booting on my machines. If
you wish, I will build and upload a kernel package for it. It is bare
with IDE, aic7xxx, aic79xx, and broadcom ethernet support. I could add
crap until it stops booting to figure out what causes the problem.

Anything I can help with here? I'm not a Debian developer but I am *a*
developer and I have several Opteron machines at my disposal, all of
them booting a Debian-built kernel (both bootstrapped from 32-bit and
built under 64-bit).
