Default Re: Any ideas when FreeBSD AMD64 driver is out?

FreeBSD/x86 compatibility is provided with the line COMPAT_IA32 in kernel config.
Linux/32 compatibaility is provided with the line COMPAT_LINUX32 in kernel config.
Wating for 64 bit linux compatibility if that is an issue.
But those options do work and have been loaded/tested in my current FreeBSD 5.3 RELEASE AMD64 kernel.
