Subject[patch 50/54] SPARC64: Fix two bugs wrt. kernel 4MB TSB.
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: David S. Miller <davem@sunset.davemloft.net>

1) The TSB lookup was not using the correct hash mask.

2) It was not aligned on a boundary equal to it's size,
which is required by the sun4v Hypervisor.

wasn't having it's return value checked, and that bug will be fixed up
as well in a subsequent changeset.
