Question about ia64 linux

A question wrt to ia64 linux environment:

Is it possible to modify a running code (in a module or kernel)
in ia64 linux? (It is not a good practise to do it.
But, I need to check  this out as it was done in ia32.....)

Probably, it is possible. I just wanted to see whether
there are any issues one should be aware of other than
serialization/flushing. There are couple of pages of
documentation regarding self-modifying code in one of
the ia64 software developers manual. I am curious
whether there are any other notes/writeups or sample
code where similar kind of things are done in ia64
linux.  I really appreciate if some one can direct me
to such doc or code (if they exist) which can give
more ia64  specific information.

Thank you very much in advance.
