bad instability on FreeBSD/amd64 6.0

I've been running amd64 version since version 6 been out without any crashes.

I am running on dell's 1850 and 2850 servers.

On my part, the only problem I see in it, is that commercial vendors 
don't support it so in my case, I can't run zend accelerator and 
pdflib since they are precompiled for IA32

IA32 compat won't help you in this case since these two program are 
loadable module so you cannot load a ia32 module in a amd64 compiled 
application even with compatIA32 in the kernel.
