Sorry for my newbie questions but:

If IPF support PA-RISC mapping is not easy to "port" the PA/RISC Linux,
excluding architectural changes in the chipset or booting process?

How HP/UX v 11.6 could be offer compatibility between PA/RISC and Itanium 2
systems?

How "exact" is the PA-RISC mapping on the IA-64 core?
