there's so many buf's in the kernel - this naming isnt very intuitive. Also,
they should perhaps be __initdata-ish?

Hm, two type cast in the same line.

these kinds of x86-64-isms:

are not particularly welcome constructs in core MM files. Appropriately
structured Kconfig helper bools, selected by arch's, are cleaner.

These patches need more work.
