Quoting from a subscribers-only (for the moment -- in under a week it
should be public) LWN article:

"Thus, in 2.6.11, the page table structure will include a new level,
called 'PUD,' placed immediately below the top-level PGD directory."

So, I think Rik's saying that most of the changes to "fix up Xen
compile with -bk9" are for adapting it to the new 4-level page table
support.
