Coda File System

64-bit issues

I built the latest cvs-version of coda using the debian-packages and a cvs
update for linux on sparc64 ; everything built fine, but starting venus
leaves the following messages in the kernel-logs:

ioctl32(venus:1273): Unknown cmd fd(8) cmd(c004630a){00} arg(000f1bc0) on
coda_read_super: device index: 0
coda_read_super: rootfid is (5659bf88.ff000001.00000001.00000001)
init_special_inode: bogus i_mode (0)
coda_read_super: rootinode is 1447672713 dev coda
Coda: Bye bye.

I read about the issues with amd64 and suspect that the problems are the
same. I tried building the packages using the C(XX)FLAGS -m32, but the
result were all the same.

Is there anything I could do to make coda work on sparc64 (32-bit mode
would be acceptable for now...)?
