No. Actually it is a 64 bit AMD Athlon. Might need to check the math being a
problem in the 64 bit domain as well.

Will check with the newer kernel when it's available but please do double check if this
problem might exist on 64 bit architectures as well...and of course I'm interested to
know whether it is the likely cuprit of my RCU problem.
