Yes, it looks odd. When extracted the SPP code from mmu.c, I found a lot
of functions in mmu.c should be exposed so that spp.c can see them, I
took them as unnecessary modification to mmu.c, so just add the spp.c file back
to mmu.c, if you suggest change it with a seperate object file, I'll do it.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll go over the patches and or-organize them.
