I think this makes sense. If the conditional expansion to 512TB is
protected by a kconfig symbol, we can use the same to have separate
ranges for 128TB and 512TB using the kconfig symbol as the
differentiating factor.

Also please let me know which branch/tree to use where we are done
with the change making the default to 128TB. My v2 was based on
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git
(mater branch), where the TASK_SIZE is set to 46-bits inside
'arch/powerpc/include/asm/processor.h'.

So that I can spin the v3 accordingly.

Thanks,
Bhupesh
