Well, right now _all_ the non-3:1 cases need to be disbarred. I think we
depend on the kernel mapping only ever being the _one_ last entry in the
top-level page table, which is only true with the 3:1 mapping.
But I didn't check.

No. It works fine (or seems to) with 2:2 mapping. I've tested with these extensively and am shipping products on the 1U appliances with 2:2 and I have never seen any problems
with 2.6.9-2.6.13.

The only unpleasant side affect with 3:1 is user apps seem to rely on swap space a little more than I like -- perhaps this is the side affect you are referring to?
RH ES uses 4:4 which is ideal and superior to this hack.
