Well, that commit does solve a return value problem on 64 bit systems but it 
isn't the workaround I was referring to ... the mail which I sent that started 
this thread (April 7, 2009) has a small patch to arch/x86/kernel/entry_64.S to 
load the return value directly from the stack and not %rax to workaround the 
corruption issue.
