I don't completely understand your repro instructions ... I'm surprised
there would be a difference here between ppc64le and x86_64 hosts... they
are both 64-bit LE hosts and the MMU stuff is host code, not JITed (well
there is JITed code for the qemu TLB lookups but that's always 4k).

Very strange ... I need to reproduce and see what the heck is doing.
