	I've noticed that the file arch/powerpc/include/vmparam.h seems
	to be completely unused by the kernel -- each powerpc-port has its
	own slightly modified version in arch/{bebox,ofppc,macppc}/include/vmparam.h.
	Either of two:

	1. The quick&dirty fix is to remove arch/powerpc/include/vmparam.h
	to avoid any confusion about its non-usage.

	2. Reduce arch/powerpc/include/vmparam.h to just contain the common
	stuff and then replace those pieces from the machine-specific
	vmparam.h's by an include of <powerpc/vmparam.h>. If this suggestion
	is accepted by the powers-that-be, I'll be happy to suggest patches
	to implement this if that's going to expedite things.

	best regards
