Gah! Where is this trailing whitespace? I went through this patch
specifically eliminating any I could find. Perhaps my mail client is
trying to irritate me.

The code, while similar, isn't quite shareable w/ ia32. However, I'd be
up for moving it to a separate IBM directory if you'd prefer, although
for just a single file it seems like overkill.
