It is not, and should have been ARM64_VA_BITS. This stanza was meant to
mimic the one for ARM64_VA_BITS. Thank you for pointing this, and the
39-bit combination out.

The general formula I used ended up being:
_max = floor(log(TASK_SIZE)) - log(PAGE_SIZE) - 3
which in the case of arm64 ended up being VA_BITS - PAGE_SHIFT - 3.
Aside: following this would actually put COMPAT_BITS_MAX at 17 for 4k
pages, rather than 16, but I left it at 16 to mirror what was put in
