Bump page size to 64kB

We are seeing random failures with go programs on a 64kB page size ppc64 box. It looks like garbage collection issues - sometimes we SEGV in timer code, sometimes we SEGV in the code that wraps a kernel read syscall. If I prevent the garbage collector from running, the programs work.

The libgo malloc hard codes the page size so I wrote a quick hack to bump this (and a few other dependent variables). This makes the problem go away, but we will need to come up with a better way to do this at runtime.
