MIPS: Fix 64-bit HTW configuration
The Hardware page Table Walker (HTW) is being misconfigured on 64-bit kernels. The PWSize.PS (pointer size) bit determines whether pointers within directories are loaded as 32-bit or 64-bit addresses, but was never being set to 1 for 64-bit kernels where the unsigned long in pgd_t is 64-bits wide. This actually reduces rather than improves performance when the HTW is enabled on P6600 since the HTW is initiated lots, but walks are all aborted due I think to bad intermediate pointers. Since we were already taking the width of the PTEs into account by setting PWSize.PTEW, which is the left shift applied to the page table index *in addition to* the native pointer size, we also need to reduce PTEW by 1 when PS=1. This is done by calculating PTEW based on the relative size of pte_t compared to pgd_t. Finally in order for the HTW to be used when PS=1, the appropriate XK/XS/XU bits corresponding to the different 64-bit segments need to be set in PWCtl. We enable only XU for now to enable walking for XUSeg. Supporting walking for XKSeg would be a bit more involved so is left for a future patch. It would either require the use of a per-CPU top level base directory if supported by the HTW (a bit like pgd_current but with a second entry pointing at swapper_pg_dir), or the HTW would prepend bit 63 of the address to the global directory index which doesn't really match how we split user and kernel page directories.
