VHPT is an acronym for Virtual Hash Page Table.  It is an in memory
extension to the processor's translation lookaside buffer.  On a TLB miss,
the CPU can optionally search the VHPT for a translation.  I believe in
Linux, the short-format is used.  For details, refer to:

Intel IA-64 Architecture
Software Developers Manual
Volume 2: IA-64 System Architecture
Section 4.1.5: Virtual Hash Page Table (VHPT)
