The page walking code is supposed to be platform independent.
I did push a branch to the buildbot a few days ago to catch issues,
and the only one found so far is an abuse of pte_index() that can be

of the p??_none/protnone/present checks seems inconsistent, but I did
not have time to audit that yet.
