I was hoping that Anton would volunteer as per his message in linux-kernel :-)

Having looked in (too much) depth at the code I decided I don't know enough
about Ultra-SPARCs to be able to do this on some else's machine. 

I've worked fairly extensively on Alphas (which are a pure 64 bit machine)
but the sparc seems to have some bizarre 32 bit modes I know nothing about.
