    I don't want to take expensive TLB misses to lookup a page.

    Don't force a virtual mapping solution down my throat if that
    is not what I believe as a platform maintainer works best
    for me.

    TLB misses are extremely expensive on some platforms, that's why
    I try to make all the critical structures go through the 4MB
    locked TLB entry for the kernel image, or failing that the
    4MB linear mappings at PAGE_OFFSET on sparc64.
