What you ask is far beyond my skills, but if you feel you're up to it
grab the source and see what it's doing for amd64 and ppc64 and try to
adapt it to sparc64. Bonus points for not breaking amd64 and ppc64 in
the process. You could also ask the Aurora Linux (sparc) people, as they
probably already face these issues.
