Is this new in glusterfs, that it doesn't work on i386, or just new that
you figured it out and are documenting it?  For distributed/remote
filesystems, I tend to feel its important for them to run everywhere
since in my view that's a major part of suitability -- but I realize
that if upstream is 64-bit only, it's next to impossible to tilt against
