Indeed this doesn't match the version in my series although is quite
similar.

My desire is that p?d_large represents the hardware architectural
definition of large page/huge page/section (pick your naming). Although
now I look more closely this is actually broken in my series (I'll fix
that up and send a new version shortly) - p?d_sect() is similarly
conditional.

Is there a good reason not to use the existing p?d_sect() macros
available on arm64?

I'm also surprised by the CONFIG_PGTABLE_LEVEL conditions as they don't
match the existing conditions for p?d_sect(). Might be worth double
checking it actually does what you expect.

Steve
