Yes, the results looks good but I feel that x86-64 platform is far
from being stable. For example, from my experience the most unstable
platform is Linux 64bits. I very often have to restart CC or even
reboot a host to make CC alive.

We may use M3 testing status for x86-64 as baseline for measuring its
progress and including it to the next release.
