With the introduction of radix MMU in Power ISA 3.0, there are changes
in kernel page table management accommodating that. This patch series
makes appropriate changes here to work for such kernels. This series
enables address translation support for radix MMU and also, fixes a
few bugs along the way.


Hari Bathini (8):
      ppc64: fix vtop page translation for 4K pages
      ppc64: Use kernel terminology for each level in 4-level page table
      ppc64: address changes in kernel v4.5
      ppc64: address change in _PAGE_PRESNT flag for PowerISA v3.0
      ppc64: use physical addresses and unfold pud for 64K page size
      ppc64: support big endian Linux page tables
      ppc64: use the same masked bit values for 4K and 64K pagesizes
      ppc64: enable address translation support for radix mmu
