Ben Guthro also just replied with the correct conclusion -- for this kind of
operation in 32-on-64 mode you are basically stuffed. There are no
alloc/dealloc/exchange functions exposed to the guest until someone plumbs
in the compat shim code (which already exists! It's just not plumbed into
this path.).
