I don't think so. I thought I was the last one when I ran SuSE on an
Ultra 1 2 years or so ago. Back then, I made some ugly patches to the
arla source which probably did not make it into the distro. You can
find it here
or at the correspondnding location in ftp but you'll have to work it
into current arla yourself.

When I did it I was constantly swearing about the lack of coordiantion
between the different architecture trees in the Linux kernel. There
is not even a .h file describing the pointer type in the sys_call_table*
It was very frustrating. I don't know why I expose myself to this 
kind of stuff ;-)


PS: <teasing> If you run a lot of Gnome and KDE stuff on your Solaris 9 
              or 10, will you notice the difference? </teasing>
