Actually no changes are necessary.

As long as physical address bits <= BITS_PER_LONG, then setting
_PFN_BITS to the most conservative value of BITS_PER_LONG is
fine. AFAIK, this condition does not hold on x86 PAE where PA
bits (36) > BITS_PER_LONG (32), so only that case need special
handling to make sure PFN bits are not lost when encoding
allocated object location in an unsigned long.

Thanks,
Nitin
