That looks like a plausible direction to investigate.  Does anyone know
whether any other architectures have a similar problem that can be solved
in this way?  Or is ia64 the only one with a "generic" kernel that has to
work on such a diverse spread of machines?

Prarit: when you get further with this you'll need to post to linux-kernel
as well as linux-ia64 since this will touch generic code.
