Hi Alex,

Sorry missed your previous mail.

Thanks, that sounds good.

I think you're right, it's dead code AFAICS.

We have:

config PPC_BOOK3S_64
...
select SYS_SUPPORTS_HUGETLBFS

config PPC_FSL_BOOK3E
...
select SYS_SUPPORTS_HUGETLBFS if PHYS_64BIT || PPC64

config PPC_8xx
...
select SYS_SUPPORTS_HUGETLBFS


So we can't ever enable HUGETLBFS for Book3S 32.

Presumably the code got copied when we split the headers apart.

So I think you can just ignore that one, and we'll delete it.

cheers
