hm you're right

is this a system call which is not enabled in the arch kernels? or just
does not exist? what exactly do you mean with "it is read-write
anyway"? what is? and how is that relevant?
If i understood ionut's mail correctly, this is something that breaks
the boot process/environment. or not?
maybe we should just disable the "64bit kernel with 32bit userspace"
