Oh, it seems the Debian kernel does not have that enabled by default. I am 
using the one from unstable (2.6.12), paer.debian.org uses the same one, 
and sarti.debian.org still uses a 2.4 one. 

I have found a sysctl access named kernel.unaligned-trap, which is set
by default. If I clear this bit, the testcase I sent which include the
source code of feholdexcept works correctly with both gcc-3.4 and with 

However if I use the feholdexcept from the glibc I still have a sigbus.
