Subject[PATCH 5/4] x86/mm: Further simplify 1 GB kernel linear mappings handling

It's a bit pointless to allow Kconfig configuration for 1GB kernel
mappings, it's already hidden behind a 'default y' and CONFIG_EXPERT.

Remove this complication and simplify the code by renaming
CONFIG_ENABLE_DIRECT_GBPAGES to CONFIG_X86_DIRECT_GBPAGES and
document the DEBUG_PAGE_ALLOC and KMEMCHECK quirks.

- by reducing TLB pressure. If in doubt, say "Y". If you've disabled
- option but your platform is capable of handling support for this
- you can use the gbpages kernel parameter. Likewise if you've enabled
