Changes in v2:
- Patch number 10 removed, it was implementing a 16 bit alignment of the PGDIR.
It is not worth potentially wasting up to 64k of memory just for removing one
instruction (ori).
- Preserve r11 while calculating the level 2 address, therefore no more need to
save r11 into CR.

Changes in v3:
- Few fixes following review from Joachim Tjernlund
- Removed the major hack which was saving resisters in memory for CPU6 errata
- Invalidating non present TLB entries earlier (in head_8xx instead of fault.c)

Changes in v4:
- Resubmitting patch 3 and 7 after new comments from Joachim and feedback
from Scott. Has impact on patch 5, 14, 19 and 21.
- Fixed patch 20 that didn't apply
