I'm not sure what you mean here.

The 32/64 bit question in this thread was the datatype used to store
sector-numbers; the effect of using 32bit is that it limits the
device-size to 1 (2) TB.

If you're talking about 64 bit PCI busses and such; this is totally
unrelated.

And yes, we'd like to use LVM on FibreChannel devices, and need 64 bit 
sector numbers :)
