Theoretically yes, practically (at least with Fedora 15/16) no. I did hit these two bugs:

1.) autofs4 interface is broken between x86 and x86_64. as systemd uses autofs, this bug hangs the boot process as e.g. binfmt is mounted via autofs. see also
- autofs4 maintainer says that this minor kernel bug could be circumvented in user land.
- systemd developers says that this kernel bug should get fixed in the kernel

2.) while debugging above issue: I did find an minor bug in sys_poll() - nobody did take care of my proposed patch:
