Dual IVT table could be a night mare for Tony, I guess. But yes we
need to have more active discussion to kick it off.

        I think this discussion shouldn't exclude IA64 Linux 
community (at least for those active members), will u like us to post 
this kind of discussion to IA64 community? Or do u have list of people 
who are most interested?
        I want to kick off some high level discussion.
thx, eddie
