shouldn't this be BUG() like other PUD huge helpers for arm32 ?

Is this based on the Dynamic IPA series ? The cover letter seems
to suggest that it is. But I don't see the check to make sure we have
stage2 PUD level here before we go ahead and try PUD huge page at
stage2. Also the comment above seems outdated in that case.
