It's impossible to recompile that driver for AMD64, aka x86-64. The reason
is, that the driver is only partially source and the raid code is only
supplied as a binary object file in ELF32 format. Thus the driver can only
be compiled on an ia32 system.
Highpoint would have to provide that object file compiled for AMD64 in
order for anyone able to build the driver. Until then, you're out of luck.
