I hear this from time to time, and every time I ask "why doesn't
32bit emulation in 64bit kernel work for you work?", the only
answers that seen to come back are various flavours of
"we didn't know about it" or "haven't tried it".

I'd love to hear of compelling reasons for not just using 64bit.
The only *real* case I've heard put forward so far has been
"we're locked in to using some binary kernel module, and there's
no 64bit version of it".  Though these days, even that should be
less true than it used to be.
