    Subject[PATCH 0/6] 16G and multi size hugetlb page support on powerpc
    This patch set builds on Nick Piggin's patches for multi size and giant 
    hugetlb page support of April 22. The following set of patches adds
    support for 16G huge pages on ppc64 and support for multiple huge page
    sizes at the same time on ppc64. Thus allowing 64K, 16M, and 16G huge
    pages given a POWER5+ or later machine.

    New to this version of my patch is numerous bug fixes and cleanups, but
    the biggest change is the support for multiple huge page sizes on power.

    patch 1: changes to generic hugetlb to enable 16G pages on power
    patch 2: powerpc: adds function for allocating 16G pages
    patch 3: powerpc: setups 16G page locations found in device tree
    patch 4: powerpc: page definition support for 16G pages
    patch 5: check for overflow when user space is 32bit
    patch 6: powerpc: multiple huge page size support

    Jon
