Patch to remove check as done on arm64

Description of problem:

64K page-table size check fails for 4K powerpc machines.

This causes polkitd to fail.

Comment 1 Alex Perez 2016-05-22 23:58:49 UTC
...and polkitd failing causes all kinds of other major problems. The severity should be bumped above medium. This basically makes it so you can't start a service from the command line on powerpc.

I can confirm that the attached patch fully resolves the problem for me. Thanks, Ed!

Comment 3 Ngo Than 2017-06-07 11:34:37 UTC
it's fixed in mozjs17-17.0.0-19.fc27 built in rawhide. Thanks
