Nobody has because currently it isn't implemented.  Nobody on the 
DRI project has done the work or expressed interest in doing so 
yet to date that I know of.  If anyone is interested in joining 
the DRI project and doing the necessary thunking work however, 
interested parties should join the dri-devel mailing list on 
sourceforge, and attend the weekly development meetings in IRC on 
#dri-devel on irc.freenode.net

To date, I've seen only a couple of people express interest in
such feature who wanted to play 32 bit video games on a 64bit
kernel.  I haven't seen any other interest to date though.

I don't think any of the DRI developers have an AMD64 system
though either.  Perhaps someone could coerce a DRI developer into 
doing the necessary work by donating them an AMD64 system for a 
while.  That's a possibility anyway. ;o)
