So that we can get consistent build coverage, could we make this:

	if (__is_defined(__PAGETABLE_PMD_FOLDED) && in_swapper_pgdir(pmdp)) {
		set_swapper_pgd((pgd_t *)pmdp, __pgd(pmd_val(pmd)));
		return;
	}

... and likewise:

	if (__is_enabled(__PAGETABLE_PUD_FOLDED) && in_swapper_pgdir(pudp)) {
		set_swapper_pgd((pgd_t *)pudp, __pgd(pud_val(pud)));
		return;
	}

Thanks,
Mark.
