I ported L4KA::Pistachio to the AMD64 architecture last spring. It runs
in 64-bit mode, and the port is actually finished. The reason why it has
not been released yet is my absence from the University, since I am
currently doing an internship. "Actually finished" means that I did not
run and test Pistachio/AMD64 on real hardware yet - I used SIMICS to
implement the stuff. I'll probably run and test it on an AMD64 box in
the near future, that is, after I have returned to Karlsruhe in January
