I'm no expert on this bit of code, but I'm pretty sure the systems
KVM/VZ has been used on the most internally had PGTABLE_LEVEL=3.

I suspect this is actually a regression from commit 31168f033e37 ("mips:
drop __pXd_offset() macros that duplicate pXd_index() ones"). Whilst
that commit is correct that pud_index() & __pud_offset() are the same
when pud_index() is actually provided, it doesn't take into account the
__PAGETABLE_PUD_FOLDED case. There __pud_offset() was available but
would always evaluate to zero, whereas pud_index() isn't defined...
