I can confirm that the tlb rework does appear to be missing some parts
for Power. (Using 2.6.29-rt3 on pseries ppc64)

arch/powerpc/kernel/built-in.o:(.toc1+0x4d0): undefined reference to
`per_cpu__ppc64_tlb_batch'
<...>
mm/built-in.o:(.toc1+0xed0): more undefined references to
`per_cpu__ppc64_tlb_batch' follow

Not clear to me if this is just missing a "DEFINE_PER_CPU_LOCKED" to
replace the removed "DEFINE_PER_CPU", (similar to the prior RT patches),
or if the tlb rework is more involved. So, I will patiently remain
tuned in. :-)

Thanks,
-Will
