You are flushing 64k bytes at 0xa000000000000000.  A default
pagesize of 16k would mean that this range includes the
per-cpu area (at 0xa000000000000000 + 2*PAGE_SIZE on 2.4.20).
The per-cpu area is mapped by an entry pinned into the TLB
by DTR[1] ... so the ptc chokes beacause it can only flush
TLB cache entries.
