With Wei Huangs 1GB patch support, one question comes to my mind
regarding the page offline support / recovery action:

How does the interface deal with different page sizes ?
IMO we should only offline the smallest possible unit of the page in error,
which is 4KB. So larger pages (2MB, 1GB) must be splitted in that case.
