Hi,

This series elides extraneous generate code for folded p4d/pud.
This came up when trying to remove __ARCH_USE_5LEVEL_HACK from ARC port.
The code saving are not a while lot, but still worthwhile IMHO.

bloat-o-meter2 vmlinux-A-baseline vmlinux-E-elide-p?d_clear_bad
add/remove: 0/2 grow/shrink: 0/1 up/down: 0/-146 (-146)
function                                     old     new   delta
p4d_clear_bad                                  2       -      -2
pud_clear_bad                                 20       -     -20
free_pgd_range                               546     422    -124
Total: Before=4137148, After=4137002, chg -1.000000%

Thx,
