Yes, it is done on purpose.  Otherwise, we need to set a larger
common-page-size if we want a larger page.

I do have 2 followup patches.

1.  Default max-page-size to common-page-size if -z separate-page-size
is used.
2.  Pad code segment with NOPs, instead zeros.

I hope I can get them into 2.30.
