I built and booted linux-next a couple of times a week or so
for ia64. Most of the time it worked just fine. I found a few
build problems, but only three run-time problems. My boot
log shows 49 successful boots of linux-next based kernels
from 2.6.25-rc2 to 2.6.27-rc6

But perhaps less people are working on breaking ia64 :-)
