btw, something I'm thinking of doing as a followup is making these use the
defines like we have in drivers/char/agp/agp.h

#define KB(x)   ((x) * 1024)
#define MB(x)   (KB (KB (x)))
#define GB(x)   (MB (KB (x)))

There's a few similar definitions throughout the tree.  Any opinions on whether
I should add these to kernel.h, or create a new header for them ?
