My suggestion was not to completely drop the #ifdef but to do like you
did in pgd_clear_tests() for instance, ie to add the following test on
top of the function:

if (mm_pud_folded(mm) || is_defined(__ARCH_HAS_5LEVEL_HACK))
return;

So IIUC, the compiletime problem is around __ARCH_HAS_5LEVEL_HACK. For
all #if !defined(__PAGETABLE_PXX_FOLDED), something equivalent to the
following should make the trick.

if (mm_pxx_folded())
return;


For the __ARCH_HAS_5LEVEL_HACK stuff, I think we should be able to
regroup all impacted functions inside a single #ifdef
__ARCH_HAS_5LEVEL_HACK
