Ah, you still have these just config time options. Can you not make an
hpage_shift variable like PowerPC or IA-64?

Thank you for reviewing this patch.

I haven't finished yet (another email to come :)).

I'm looking forward any comments/suggestions ^_^

unsigned int hpage_shift = SECTION_SHIFT + 1; /* default to 2MB page */
#define HPAGE_SHIFT hpage_shift

Something like that. You could even use PMD_SHIFT which is 21 already
and it makes it clearer that we use huge pages at the pmd level.

OK, I will keep that in mind for V3.

So, should I send another version now, or wait until you walk through
the reset of patch set?

Just wait, I'll have a look through all the patches.

BTW, there are several coding style issues, I won't go through them but
it would help if you have a look at Documentation/CodingStyle
(especially comment style, if/else brackets).

Yes, I forgot to run to sanitize this patch set.
Will keep in mind for all next version.



I am a slow learner
but I will keep trying to fight for my dreams!
