Superpages (4 MB pages) support for x86?

I'm interested in making use of the 4 MB pages options in x86.  Has
anyone done any work on this for FreeBSD?  I know that some work was
done on superpages for the Alpha and AMD64.


If there's no prior work on this, I'll be writing it myself.  Does
anybody know if the superpages work would contain anything useful for a
x86 port?


Any hints or guidance would be quite welcome.
