BTW, I have CONFIG_PPC_64K_PAGES enabled.
But that might be a good place to start. Can you see if you can
reproduce the problem without this config option set?

It would be useful to compare the compiler warning output for 64k pages
versus that for smaller-pages.
Several quite worrisome-looking warnings are emitted from various parts of
the kernel with 64k pages.  Related to arithmetic on short types.
1. the config diff
