If 'uname -i' reports i686, that usually means you have configured the kernel for 32-bit. Try rebuilding the kernel with 'CONFIG_64BIT' and 'CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION' enabled to test that the 32-bit user space now also works under a 64-bit kernel.
done... tested with CONFIG_64BIT and CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION. The original ppdev code failed with my userspace test code. After applying patch 1/2 of v3 it still failed, but after applying 2/2 of v3 it worked.
will you take v3 through your y2038 tree? or I can keep them for, ummmmm, 4.6 merge window.
My preference would be for you to pick it up. I try to only use the y2038 tree for patches to drivers that have no maintainer.
