I believe it does not.

IIUC our p?d_huge() helpers implicitly handle contiguous entries. That's
where you have $N entries in the current level of table that the TLB can
cache together as one.

Our p?d_sect() helpers only match section entries. That's where we map
an entire next-level-table's worth of VA space with a single entry at
the current level.

Thanks,
Mark.
