Aside of the whole conditional thing (I agree it would be better to have
this unconditionally); the function doesn't really do as advertised.

That is, if @from is clear, it doesn't endeavour to make sure @to is
also clear.

Now it might be sufficient, but in that case it really needs a comment
and or different name.

An implementation that actually moves the bit is something like:

pteval_t a,b;

a = native_pte_value(pte);
b = (a >> from_bit) & 1;
a &= ~((1ULL << from_bit) | (1ULL << to_bit));
a |= b << to_bit;
return make_native_pte(a);
