I don't think any other platform does that (the 40x also maps 16Mb,
book3s/601 maps 24Mb)

But why not, could do that in another patch.

Is there an easy way to get the link to fail when CONFIG_PIN_TLB_TEXT is
set and _einittext is higher than 16Mb ?

Or should we just map up to 24Mb on the 8xx and consider we are on the
safe side with that much ?
