Likely cause would be that the structs for stat don't match between
the kernel and glibc. I still think the best approach would be to go
for a clean 64 bit userland from the beginning as we have on the Alpha
and ia64 and provide backwards compat support afterwards. I don't like
to see the hppa64 port end up in the same situation as sparc64 where
almost nothing gets done for years because there is already a 32 bit

Anyway it looks to me like someone needs to sit down and decide on a
strategy for this and review all the data structures accordingly.

Bug in the driver, compile it as a loadable module and it will work
... or grab http://home.cern.ch/~jes/gige/acenic-0.49-test2.tar.gz
