Ah okay - I didn't realise you were waiting either. I can test and make 
sure it doesn't break SPARC64. In turn, could you take a look at patch 
6/6 of my recent SPARC32/OFMEM fixes, as I believe since PPC64 still has 
a ucell/cell size of 32-bits and so it will affect the generation of the 
memory properties there (i.e. the top address will be truncated to 32-bits).
