Yes, X86_FEATURE_NX is not the same bit type as the bits you have in
%edi.

Yes.

And look at the code after you've changed it. Do you think someone
looking at it a couple of months from now will know what

L3_START_KERNEL*8 + 8

or

(L3_START_KERNEL + 1)*8

means?

So having 510 and 511 to mean the last two page table entries is much
more understandable.

Like I told you a couple of days ago, please don't waste your time with
stuff which already works and there are no problems with and go look for
real bugs. Believe me, there are plenty out there.

No problem.
