 I do not think the patch in question is board specific.
It has been arround for a long time. And I think alot of people have
been bitten by the problem.
It is required for my board.
I think it is required for any board that generates a large enough image.
I would be happy to signoff on it - it works/is necescary on my board.

I can not seem to find the same code in arch/powerpc so I have no clue
whether something similar might be needed there.
