I did NOT FORGET to post the URL of my code as I mentioned I am
interested in general
areas of the kernel to look for. Like is there any problem related to
64 bit specific kernel compilation etc...

You should ask for my system configurations. As far as the code is
concered there is not any architecture specific issue I guess in that.
I have used threads of MD as my generic thread library and have used
calculations based on unsigned long.

Kernel Version:
I am using is 2.6.9 and onwards.

Machine configuration is :
HP Prolient DL 145 (Dual Opteron 244 Processors with 14GB RAM)
