This is such a huge mistake I wish platforms such as powerpc and IA64
would not make such decisions so lightly.

The memory wastage is just rediculious.

I already see several distributions moving to 64K pages for powerpc,
so I want to nip this in the bud before this monkey-see-monkey-do
thing gets any more out of hand.
