This patch adds a kernel configuration for VA_BITS.

It helps to prevent unnecessary #ifdef statements insertions
for VA_BITS when implementing different page sizes and level of
translation tables.

OK, so you are doing the VA bits selection already. But see my other
email about setting only exposing this and hiding the number of levels
(though number of levels can be mentioned in the help).

Okay. I will hide the number of levels.
