Yes and no.  The code that's there needs to stay - it's a workaround
for a POWER5 hardware bug - but it doesn't have any real connection to
EEH.  The only reason we use EEHREGIONBASE is that it's a segment
address which will never have anything real mapped into it.
0xFFFFFFFFF0000000 would do just as well.
