I ported this to sparc64 as per the patch below, tested on
UP SunBlade1500 and 24 cpu Niagara T1000.

And for fun I checked everything except the SLUB patch into
a cloned Linus tree at:

	kernel.org:/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/quicklist-2.6.git

Someone with some extreme patience could do the sparc 32-bit port too,
in fact it's lacking the cached PGD update logic that x86 et al. have
so it would even end up being a bug fix :-)  This lack is why sparc32
pre-initializes the vmalloc/module area PGDs with static page tables
at boot time, FWIW.
