I think everyone is suggesting the same general path, and I'm gratified
to know that the buddy system code anticipates non-contiguous physical
memory.

I think you'd want to extend the design limit (XKSEG0) beyond 1 TB
to handle the next rev of silicon.  I'd suggest 64 TB (48 bits) as
the appropriate goal.
