    There is no way to limit virtual memory to 44 bits. I don't know how
    your device works, but just fyi: ia64 divides the address space into 8
    equal-sized regions and user space applications tend to use at least
    two regions (2 for text and 3 for data/stack). This means that even
    with the smallest page size, you'll have to take virtual address bits
    61-63 into account.

    Hope this helps,
