That line was added to the document in r330271 which was 2005-11-02  
10:27:16 -0500 (Wed, 02 Nov 2005)

We're currently on r979120.

I strongly suspect that this is something that has simply carried over  
from one version to another, and hasn't been tested recently. I would  
encourage someone to test this, and submit a doc patch. I don't have  
access to Linux on Itanium, so am unable to do so.
