The debugger could. Only one detail was missing - all instances of movq 
involving tmp1 or tmp2 needed a change. Example:

	movq k(0),tmp1
	movdqa (tmp1),%xmm0

Under X32, tmp1 would get 8 bytes of which 4 was correct and when 
dereferenced, it ended up totally wrong (wrong half used, or whatever).

Solution was change all "movq" to "mov" and define two new macros tmp1p 
and tmp2p, which are used for these movs.

   #define tmp1            %r9
+#ifdef __ILP32__
+#define tmp1p           %r9d
+#define tmp1p           tmp1

-	movq k(0),tmp1
+	mov k(0),tmp1p

About 20 such changes. Full version is in efb18645. All DES formats pass 
self-tests and Test Suite (tripcode is not in TS though). Speeds are on 
par with x86-64.
