Right, AFAIRC, the main reason for this being an export was because if
we hid it in a function, you'd have all those function calls as part of
the _PAGE_* macros and that's just crap.

And then having an accessor too for the mask which we export anyway is
kinda silly.

But maybe there's a different, nicer solution which we missed...
