    btw., v2.6.25-rc1 is not affected by this. Gbpages support is a "still
    cooking" feature only available in x86.git#mm, destined for .26, and
    even there it's default disabled and only available on Barcelona class
    hardware. (Some of these bits are upstream already to make maintenance
    easier, but they are inactive code.)
