powerpc does have __HAVE_CPU_UAREA_ROUTINES defined.
but I can't find PMAP_MAP_POOLPAGE enabled
only a explicit disable for !PPC_OEA64 and !PPC_OEA_BRIDGE

This makes sens as with PMAP_MAP_POOLPAGE it would be hard to run out of
kmem_arena space.

So we should be safe increasing the kmem_arena size as we don't compete
with uareas.
