ia64 has a such a huge number of memory model choices. Maybe we
need to cut it down to a small set that actually work.

That includes fund bits like the 'VIRTUAL_MEM_MAP' option where the
comment claims:

# VIRTUAL_MEM_MAP and FLAT_NODE_MEM_MAP are functionally equivalent.
# VIRTUAL_MEM_MAP has been retained for historical reasons.

but it still is selected as the default if sparsemem is not enabled..
