I would like to know what do you guys (Andy, in particular) feel about
data types and sizes in 64 bit port.
Should long be upgraded to 128 bits and pointers to 64 bits or for the
sake of compatibility and ports, should long remain 64 bits and only
pointers be upgraded to 64 bits of storage?
Further, do you recommend any changes to the file system and binary
format as well to accomodate these new types and registers?
Although I'm not sure, as I've not researched binary formats and file
system yet, I think a little change is inevitible? What does the
community feel? Can we standardize upon the format as well?
I dont know if Minix is a community driven phenomenon yet, but I feel
these decisions are best left to the community.
