It is unfortunately the other way around, we have 32-bit of both worlds,
hardware and software, but we want/have to support 64-bits systems as well.
Not a problem to run the usual userspace, nor for the kernel module for Coda
(available in the stock binary kernels) - but a challenge for the Coda client

Thanks anyway!
