    SubjectRe: [PATCH 14 of 33] IB/ipath - fix port sharing on powerpc
    I applied this, but I still think there's some more work to do in this

    there's no guarantee that a physical address fits in 40 or 44 or 63
    bits on a 64 bit platform. So you've fixed this problem on the
    platforms you test for now, but it could easily crop up again...
