What, if any, is the reason for x86-64 xenlinux to have a different
__PAGE_OFFSET value than native? While merging, it would seem reasonable
to drop this difference if not motivated technically.

Jun might remember if there was a particular reason, but I can't think of any insurmountable technical reason why the native __PAGE_OFFSET value shouldn't work.
