Note that on 32-bit kernels this blows up our CPU area calculations:

./include/linux/compiler.h:350:38: error: call to ‘__compiletime_assert_181’ declared with attribute error: BUILD_BUG_ON failed: CPU_ENTRY_AREA_PAGES * PAGE_SIZE < CPU_ENTRY_AREA_MAP_SIZE
./include/linux/compiler.h:331:4: note: in definition of macro ‘__compiletime_assert’
./include/linux/compiler.h:350:2: note: in expansion of macro ‘_compiletime_assert’
./include/linux/build_bug.h:39:37: note: in expansion of macro ‘compiletime_assert’
./include/linux/build_bug.h:50:2: note: in expansion of macro ‘BUILD_BUG_ON_MSG’
arch/x86/mm/cpu_entry_area.c:181:2: note: in expansion of macro ‘BUILD_BUG_ON’
make[2]: *** [scripts/Makefile.build:265: arch/x86/mm/cpu_entry_area.o] Error 1

Thanks,
