    Few modules take an interest in ptes, that's as it should be, and so
    few modules build to different binaries with CONFIX_X86_PAE off or on
    (modulo module versions). I love vmalloc_to_page because it takes pte
    dependence out of a group of modules which really had no interest in
    ptes in the first place. Less false grep hits when searching the tree!
