Are you sure you want that in ? The SPU code upstream isn't ready for
64k pages yet... I spotted at least:

__spu_trap_data_seg() and get_kernel_slb()

Those need to encode the proper page size. I think you have patches for
that already. I wouldn't enable 64k pages with the abvoe without these
as you may end up with infinite hash fault loops due to the mismatch
between page size encoding in the hash table an in the SLB.

Ben.
