The patch is below.

I left things at a u32, but I would really like it if you changed to an
unsigned long and adjusted my patch for me.

Thanks,

Subject: [Patch] Implement memory_block_size_bytes for x86_64 when CONFIG_X86_UV


Nathan Fontenot has implemented a patch set for large memory configuration
systems which will combine drivers/base/memory.c memory sections
together into memory blocks with the default behavior being
unchanged from the current behavior.

In his patch set, he implements a memory_block_size_bytes() function
for PPC.  This is the equivalent patch for x86_64 when it has
CONFIG_X86_UV set.
