Excellent.  This patch, especially the LMB simplification
and removal of the physbase bits, greatly simplifies the
notion of merging LMB form 64 land and the mem_pieces.

I have previously submitted patches against the ppc32 code
that enhance the mem_pieces towards the LMB structure as well.

Given an eventual merger of the two bodies of code, I'd
like to make the merger of these two structures more complete.
I'll work towards that goal if that's a Good Idea.

Advice here?
