[RFC][PATCH 3/9] actual generic PAGE_SIZE infrastructure

From: Dave Hansen <haveblue_at_us.ibm.com>
Date: 2006-08-31 08:16:06
* Add _ALIGN_UP() which we'll use now and _ALIGN_DOWN(), just for
  parity.
* Define ASM_CONST() macro to help using constants in both assembly
  and C code.  Several architectures have some form of this, and
  they will be consolidated around this one.
* Actually create PAGE_SHIFT and PAGE_SIZE macros
* For now, require that architectures enable GENERIC_PAGE_SIZE in
  order to get this new code.  This option will be removed by the
  last patch in the series, and makes the series bisect-safe.
* Note that this moves the compiler.h define outside of the
  #ifdef __KERNEL__, but that's OK because it has its own.

+	  32-bit compatibility on 64-bit architectures, a page size of 4KB
+	  should be selected (although most binaries work perfectly fine with
+	  a larger page size).  For best performance, a page size of larger
