annoying prinkts during vmemmap initialization

your patch 'ppc64: SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP support' adds the following two lines:
+ printk(KERN_WARNING "vmemmap %08lx allocated at %p, "
+ "physical %p.\n", start, p, __pa(p));
in a loop around basically every page. That's a lot of flooding (with
the wrong printk level, btw) and really slows down booting my cell blade
a lot (these only have a very slow serial over lan console).
Any reason to keep this? And if yes can we please make it conditional
on some kind of vmemmap_debug boot option?
