This seems wrong. If you're building LPAE, then you should have AEABI
enabled, which means you're using EABI. (ARM_LPAE should depend on
AEABI, but it doesn't.)
EABI places 64-bit arguments in an even/odd register pair. So:
void cpu_set_pte_ext(pte_t *ptep, pte_t pte, unsigned int ext);
ptep is in r0, and if pte_t is 64-bit, then pte is passed in r2 and r3.
Not r1 and r2. ext is passed on the stack.
