I'm using an server on a ppc64 kernel, and it all works,
including DRI.  Both 32-bit and 64-bit X server and clients work.  We
now have the 32-bit ioctl compatibility sorted out in the kernel DRM.
So I don't think X is a reason to run a 32-bit kernel any more.

What problems do you see with a 64-bit kernel?
