> That makes sense - but was a surprise.  Let me see if I can get one of the companies I work with to contribute their simulator - not to be shipped, but to be tested against.  The simulator runs at 32bits, but the pkcs11 library that talks to the simulator has builds for win 32/64 linux 32/64 and Solaris.

This OpenJDK7 changeset might help in the future on Windows x86_64:


It would be nice if it did help someone.  It doesn't help us with IcedTea.

Interesting Windows on x86_64 seems to be one of the builds that's
always tested, whereas GNU/Linux on x86_64 isn't -- strange given the
latter is older and far more widespread.
