That's not an argument: the "bloat" can be trivially hidden for
non-drifty architectures with an inline routine or macro.  I for one
would be perfectly happy to pay an extra word in the ia64-version of
task_struct if that would yield a generic and scalable solution to the
problem.  The problem right now is that the generic kernel code is
structured in a way that prevents this.
