I supposed that they are trying to port the module to 64 bit kernels, maybe 
you could contact the developer and ask him if there's a plan to include i8k 
on kernel for 64bits distros, I hope so.

Furthermore I rembemer that i read (don't know where) that the problem was (i 
don't know if it's still a problem) that the main developer of i8k hasn't got 
a 64bit machine where he could be able to test his driver and modifying it if 
that was necesary.
