Well, I supposed it was the reason why few SCSI cards were in i386 
kernel, but weren't in amd64. Perhaps I was wrong. I am talking about these:

device         ncv             # NCR 53C500
device         nsp             # Workbit Ninja SCSI-3
device         stg             # TMC 18C30/18C50

Perhaps the reason is just that nobody has the hardware to test on amd64.
