Hello Amon!

At some point, I tried everything to get it work, so I just applied the 
patch you've provided me to fix the syscall error in 
asm-sparc64/unistd.h to get the right syscall number. ;)

Currently I have no access to the linux machine at work, but as soon as 
I could get it back online, I'll send you the warnings. Should be during 
next week.

I think sparc64 is big endian ordered, while x86 is litte endian.

Thank you for your help and your great work.
