Re: Variable page size (off topic)

Actually, page size is not always constrained by the hardware. For example,
the MIPS processor does not traverse page tables. Instead, the operating
system is responsible for handling page faults by loading the TLB cache.
Consequently, on a MIPS platform, the operating system is free to structure
the page tables as it chooses. Of course the MIPS platform is essentially
dead, but not for want of a decent hardware architecture.
