Yep, tested it on my board.  It's not the end goal I am looking for, but
it's a good starting point.

Basically, what I would like to get eventually is large TLBs + protected
kernel text pages.  Like you and Matt pointed out, there are issues with
that.  If it can't be done, then at least I can use this patch to
protect the kernel text pages easily.  Sometimes protection is more
important than performance.  Especially when I am hacking on stuff ;).

Thanks for the help.
