 Fix that software then, instead of breaking good one (hint -- what is the
"right" value of PAGE_SHIFT and why it doesn't work for that system over
there?).  With these macros exported it's hard to guess whether the page
size can be hardcoded or it should get determined at the run time.  And 
with glibc you get a compilation error due to PAGE_SHIFT being undefined.  
Please revert the braindamage.

 What software is the offender, BTW?
