Hi Michael,

After I read this link, noticed that you have the following patch, but when I 
check up the mips-linux, the patch is not there.

I wonder if you could explain to me a little bit?

Thank you!

P.S.: I also worked at SciAtl a few years ago in IPTV division.

I *think* I got tentative signoff from Dave and Any below as per the copied snipits below. I made the modifications that they suggested. please see the attached for two patches:
a) the code
b) the sparsemem.txt doc

not sure if the mips powers that be were ok w/ it. pardon my ignorance, not sure if I am required to do anymore. There was some comment to try this out w/ the CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP which I believe should "just work", but we've never tried it as of yet, so by my rule I can't
say it is so.. (has anyone tried that?)

Looks great to me.  I can't test it, of course, but I don't see any
problems with it.

Otherwise it looks good to me.  I see from the rest of the thread that
there is some discussion over the sizes of these, with that sorted.
