It seems to work with icc on my 32 bit intel cpu. Earlier you speculated that
the struct might be getting padded out which would cause hash failures. But
surely using a different padding from other compilers would be a compiler bug
since it would be an incompatible ABI change. I find it hard to believe
intel's compiler would get the ia64 ABI wrong. And hard to believe nobody's
noticed an incompatible ABI from gcc-generated binaries.
