It runs on all architectures FreeBSD supports. The question is how well
it runs. The wider the testing, the better the code, of course. We're
actively testing on amd64 and i386 with limited testing on sparc64 and
ARM. I've been running with this patches on amd64 on multiple machines
for months. amd64 is rock solid from my experience. But your mileage may
vary, hence the CFT. :-)

Thanks,

Shawn
