This series enables the 16K page size support on Linux for arm64.
This series adds support for 48bit VA(4 level), 47bit VA(3 level) and
36bit VA(2 level) with 16K. 16K was a late addition to the architecture
and is not implemented by all CPUs. Added a check to ensure the
selected granule size is supported by the CPU, failing which the CPU
won't proceed with booting.

KVM bits have been tested on a fast model with GICv3 using Andre's kvmtool
with gicv3 support[1].

Patches 1-7 cleans up the kernel page size handling code.
Patches 8-11 Fixes some issues with the KVM bits, mainly the fake PGD
             handling code.
Patch 12    Adds a check to ensure the CPU supports the selected granule size.
Patch 13-14 Adds the 16k page size support bits.

This series applies on top of for-next/core branch of the aarch64 tree and is
also available here:

[1] git://linux-arm.org/kvmtool.git gicv3/v4

 1) Testing on a silicon
 2) Analyse the performance of HugePages with 16K (32MB) on a
 3) SMMU driver
