hmm. There is no message from the readelf command but there it dosen't
report any .data.percpu area. The only sections for data are just .data and
.rela.data

I am still booting with the larger percpu size but I see

percpu_modalloc: allocating 16 bytes for module scsi_mod (vmlinux:41600)
percpu_modalloc: allocating 8 bytes for module ipv6 (vmlinux:41600)

from the log. Something built in is eating it.

I am turing off the readhead to see if that helps.

Thanks,
Keith
