Thank you, that fixes the m68k allmodconfig build, so

Not related to this patch, but "| PAGE_OFFSET" is not identical
to "+ PAGE_OFFSET" for large kernel sizes.

More specifically, I'm thinking about platforms where "large" would
be >= 32 MiB:
arch/mips/include/asm/mach-ar7/spaces.h:#define PAGE_OFFSET
_AC(0x94000000, UL)
or >= 128 MiB:
arch/x86/Kconfig:         default 0x78000000 if VMSPLIT_2G_OPT

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

                        Geert
