Subject: [PATCH 07/23] x86, kaiser: make sure static PGDs are 8k in size


From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@...ux.intel.com>

A few PGDs come out of the kernel binary instead of being
allocated dynamically.  Before this patch, they are all
8k-aligned, but they must also be 8k in *size*.

The original KAISER patch did not do this.  It probably just
lucked out that it did not trample over data after the last PGD.
