Most architectures current have a debugfs file for dumping the kernel
page tables. Currently each architecture has to implement custom
functions for walking the page tables because the generic
walk_page_range() function is unable to walk the page tables used by the

This series extends the capabilities of walk_page_range() so that it can
deal with the page tables of the kernel (which have no VMAs and can
contain larger huge pages than exist for user space). x86 and arm64 are
then converted to make use of walk_page_range() removing the custom page
table walkers.

To enable a generic page table walker to walk the unusual mappings of
the kernel we need to implement a set of functions which let us know
when the walker has reached the leaf entry. Since arm, powerpc, s390,
sparc and x86 all have p?d_large macros lets standardise on that and
implement those that are missing.

Potentially future changes could unify the implementations of the
debugfs walkers further, moving the common functionality into common
code. This would require a common way of handling the effective
permissions (currently implemented only for x86) along with a per-arch
way of formatting the page table information for debugfs. One
immediate benefit would be getting the KASAN speed up optimisation in
arm64 (and other arches) which is currently only implemented for x86.

Changes since v3:
 * Restored the generic macros, only implement p?d_large() for
   architectures that have support for large pages. This also means
   adding dummy #defines for architectures that define p?d_large as
   static inline to avoid picking up the generic macro.
 * Drop the 'depth' argument from pte_hole
 * Because we no longer have the depth for holes, we also drop support
   in x86 for showing missing pages in debugfs. See discussion below:
 * mips: only define p?d_large when _PAGE_HUGE is defined.

Changes since v2:
 * Rather than attemping to provide generic macros, actually implement
   p?d_large() for each architecture.

Changes since v1:
 * Added p4d_large() macro
 * Comments to explain p?d_large() macro semantics
 * Expanded comment for pte_hole() callback to explain mapping between
   depth and P?D
 * Handle folded page tables at all levels, so depth from pte_hole()
   ignores folding at any level (see real_depth() function in
