What cpu feature flags are enabled on the K6/II? (these should now be
printed as part of the boot messages).
My K6 reports PSE, but not PGE (pte global extension), which means it
will be doing a full TLB flush on every context switch, which will
likely significantly reduce how much you win from mapping the kernel
with a large page.
