some architectures (eg ia64) don't have a canonical page size.
It is possible to build kernels (and Xen) with different page size.
Such configurations are not yet working, but as a first step this patch makes
the info available.
Ideally pagesize should be a field of platform_parameter but doing so would
break binary compatibility.

Why might you care about Xen's page size on such systems? Presumably the guest at this point is happily running on the page size of its choice?
