The thing -- i gave up building sm_13 on 32bit environment for linux and
was using 64bit platform to build sm_13 32bit kernel. It just requires more
memory than 32bit platform could physically address. So afraid currently no
way you could compile sm_13 on a 32bit platform without tweaking the kernel.
