The implementation of some cryptographic
algorithms, e.g. sha1, as supplied with the
kernel module assumes 32bit CPUs and has
been found to cause kernel heap corruption at
least on Alpha, IA64 and AMD 64bit CPUs (see
pptpclient-devel mailing list, e.g. my own posting
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=3324727&forum_id=773
- there are numerous others reporting the same
problem and most probably providing better
patches).
