2MB pages (and 4MB pages) are dependent on PSE/PAE, there's no configurable
page size on x86 like there is on other platforms.

PSE gives you 4MB pages, PAE reduces your 4MB pages to 2MB pages (for
extra flag and address bits.)

About the only useful places for these are large mappings like ioremap
and whatnot.
