Oops, I said it backwards. What I mean is that if you have the repeating
pattern:

0x12345678 12345678 12345678 12345678 12345678 12345678

that's the same as the repeating pattern:

0x1234567812345678 1234567812345678 1234567812345678

so the 64-bit kernel is able to find all patterns that the 32-bit kernel is,
and more.
