Subject[PATCH v9 10/21] mm: Add generic p?d_leaf() macros
Exposing the pud/pgd levels of the page tables to walk_page_range() means
we may come across the exotic large mappings that come with large areas
of contiguous memory (such as the kernel's linear map).

For architectures that don't provide all p?d_leaf() macros, provide
generic do nothing default that are suitable where there cannot be leaf
pages that that level.
