Subject[RFC PATCH v3 2/4] mm: Add page table level flags to vm_flags
Date
Add VM_LEVEL_[PUD|PMD|PTE] to vm_flags to indicate which level of
the page tables the vma is in. Those flags can be used to reduce
the cost of TLB invalidation.

These should be common flags for all architectures, however, those
flags are only available in 64-bits system currently, because the
lower-order flags are fully used.

These flags are only used by ARM64 architecture now. See in next
patch.
