When I took a look at your patch, I felt that with a comment and 
PAGE_SIZE on its own that it was fairly obvious what was happening (as I 
can't see it being something that people would want to keep changing). I 
don't feel overwhelmingly strongly about it, so if you or anyone else 
feel there is a good case for doing it that way then I'm happy to be 

I think the most important thing at the moment is to work out why 
SPARC64 dereferences a NULL pointer during PCI enumeration though :/
