Thread-topic: iptables/vmalloc issues on alchemy
Sorry, I should have been more clear:  The little test module I created
worked without CONFIG_64BIT_PHYS_ADDR, I realize that it would fail for
the PCI device though.

An Au1500 or Au1550 isn't likely to work with this disabled.
PCI and other peripherals exist in the 36-bit space, unless you
disable them.  I suspect all of this got broken with the dynamic
exception handler building.  Prior to that, I suspect it works
fine.  I guess we need to do some regression testing ....
