Please don't #ifdef the call site or tweak the inlines - isn't what Kirill
suggested:

if (CONFIG_PGTABLE_LEVELS == 4)

at the call site enough to fix the bug?

BTW., how can this be a regression, if in v4.12 CONFIG_PGTABLE_LEVELS is always 4?

For CONFIG_PGTABLE_LEVELS == 5 it won't work - but we don't have
CONFIG_PGTABLE_LEVELS == 5 upstream yet.

Thanks,

Ingo
