Description

In http://www.mail-archive.com/soekris-tech@lists.soekris.com/msg06840.html a feature request ticket has been asked for - I haven't found one so here it is.

Problem:
FreeBSD amd64 can run on soekris6501 but not with the standard GENERIC kernel.

Solution (stolen from http://wiki.soekris.info/Installing_FreeBSD#net6501):

"...the amd64 64-bit build of FreeBSD works, but not with the standard GENERIC kernel (at least not with FreeBSD-9.0). You need to build a special kernel configuration in /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf that contains the line "device mptable" and then build a kernel with that option enabled... the resulting kernel will boot on the net6501 in 64-bit mode without any problem."

has potential to break other things, and we don't really care about Soekris hardware
