Thanks. I'll apply it to the next build of the kernel.

I had to modify it to apply to Linus' current kernel -- please could you
verify that my modification to fsys.S was correct? Note the new line
immediately after the addition. The only IA64 hardware I have easy
access to has wheels, and I believe it's too old to run _any_ Linux
kernel any more.
