Ben are you aware of any doc where i can find more information. I 
checked the
64Bit PowerPC ELF ABI doc but couldn't find any specific information about

Also other question is  If we create a 64k segment irrespective of page size
[ as compared to 32k currently ] we would be writing extra 32k even for
page size of 4K. Which means we have 32k less memory for the kdump
kernel. Wouldn't that be an issue ?
