Subject[PATCH 0/3] KVM: x86/mmu: Use kernel's PG_LEVEL_* enums
Drop KVM's PT_{PAGE_TABLE,DIRECTORY,PDPE}_LEVEL KVM enums in favor of the
kernel's PG_LEVEL_{4K,2M,1G} enums, which have far more user friendly

The KVM names were presumably intended to abstract away the page size. In
practice, the abstraction is only useful for a single line of code, a PSE
paging related large page check. For everything else, the abstract names
do nothing but obfuscate the code.

Boot tested a PSE kernel under 32-bit KVM and 64-bit KVM, with and without
EPT enabled. Patches 2 and 3 generate no binary difference relative to
patch 1 when compared via "objdump -d".

KVM: x86/mmu: Move max hugepage level to a separate #define
