    All the 4xx, 8xx, and 82xx embedded PPC cpus use software TLB
    loading. The 7450 has a mode bit to say whether to use a hash table
    or software TLB loading. And the new "Book E" specification also
    mandates software-loaded TLBs.

    That still leaves almost all of the current Macs and RS/6000s using a
    hash table, of course. It does sound like providing at least the
    option to use software TLB loading is becoming common in new PPC

    (And BTW they are not hash *chains*, there is no chaining involved.
    There is a primary bucket and a secondary bucket for any given
    address, each of which can hold 8 ptes.)
