I've tried to split it to several smaller ones, but I couldn't find a way
to do it without breaking bisectability.

As for the intrusive, most of the changes are mechanical

Yep, the idea is to remove asm-generic/pgtable-nop4d-hack.h and
asm-generic/5level-fixup.h.

And, there is a small benefit for powerpc as kernel size is reduced a bit,
e.g. for pseries_defconfig:

$ size old/vmlinux new/vmlinux
text data bss dec hex filename
13702955 5961022 1517520 21181497 1433439 old/vmlinux
13702507 5961006 1517520 21181033 1433269 new/vmlinux
