The moderm kernel on powernv platform cannot possibly boot with values
less than 12 as the default DMA window of 2GB requires
(2<<30)/4096 TCEs which is 4MB of contiguous memory, log2(4M) == 22
so anything less than 12 won't work.

I am hitting this when switching the system page size from 64K to 4K and
back. When I switch to 64K, zone order is set to 9 by default and
it does not change when I switch to 4K as 9 is still within the limits.
And there are other folks complaining about this too.
