additional question: are sizeof(long) different on sparc32 and sparc64?
if so, routing socket alignment (ROUNDUP in sys/net/rtsock.c will
have the similar problem.
sizeof(long) is different between 32bit SPARC and 64bit SPARC. note that
ultrasparc hardware is capable of running both and (we eventually hope that
a :-) NetBSD/sparc64 64bit kernel can/will run both. the same problem will
apply to 64bit mips ports that want to run 32bit applications.
