yes, it's pmd entry bits.

That requires some work and not so easy and need hardware support... So, recently it won't come.
But one can easily create the same pmd entry bits for some special use;
as comment above, it's a pmd entry bits, only mark a size, not a flag;
and adjust the logic to use the flag can perfect avoid this potential issuse,
and basically no impact to the current code.
