The only reason we allocated these two items together was because it
was convenient and it all fit into a single page.

Since it now doesn't, it makes sense to split it up.

Simply use a single page for the cpu_list_pa and kzalloc for the
cpu_mondo_block.

This also allows to keep the BUILD_BUG_ON(), which I really wish
you hadn't tried to remove.

static void __init init_cpu_send_mondo_info(struct trap_per_cpu *tb)
{
#ifdef CONFIG_SMP
	unsigned long page;
	void *mondo;

	BUILD_BUG_ON((NR_CPUS * sizeof(u16)) > PAGE_SIZE);

	mondo = kzalloc(64, GFP_KERNEL);
	if (!mondo) {
		prom_printf("SUN4V: Error, cannot allocate mondo block.\n");
		prom_halt();
	}
	tb->cpu_mondo_block_pa = __pa(mondo);

	page = get_zeroed_page(GFP_KERNEL);
	if (!page) {
		prom_printf("SUN4V: Error, cannot allocate cpu list page.\n");
		prom_halt();
	}
	tb->cpu_list_pa = __pa(page);
#endif
}

Thanks.
