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.
