When I compile base kernel 2.6.1 with PAGE_SIZE=64KB on an IA64
platform, there is an error.
  CC      init/version.o
  LD      init/built-in.o
  LD      .tmp_vmlinux1
drivers/built-in.o(.init.text+0x168a2): In function `uhci_hcd_init':
: undefined reference to `__you_cannot_kmalloc_that_much'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

That's because ERRBUF_LEN (equal to PAGE_SIZE*8) is too long when
PAGE_SIZE=64KB. Actually, there was a similar error found by Tony. See 

Could you change the definition of ERRBUF_LEN to a fixed value? For
example, 32*1024?
