This looks good to me, thank you for taking my feedback into account.
Is the patch split and naming good? Yes I guess so, this adds support
for ppc32 archs that select PPC_MM_SLICES, and the next one implements
it for 8xx. There looks to be some generic arch/powerpc/mm bits in the
next patch. I wonder if you would move them over? Then the next patch
could be called powerpc/8xx: ?
Anyway it's not a big deal.
