Add the intermedivmlinux-A-baseline vmlinux-B-elide-ARCH_USE_5LEVEL_HACK

This is a non-functional change anyways since ARC has software page walker
with 2 lookup levels (pgd -> pte)

There is slight code bloat due to pulling in needless p*d_free_tlb()
macros which needs to be addressed seperately.

Could we encourage other architectures to do the same, and get rid of
all uses of __ARCH_USE_5LEVEL_HACK?

IMHO this should have been done at the onset. The actual changes don't seem that
difficult, just need to add the missing p4d calls although I can sympathize with
hassles of coordinating/building/testing/yadi yada cross arch.

OTOH, the [45]LEVEL_HACK seem like a nice way to "fold" the levels: the
skipped/folded level vanishes completely. Among others it does things like

     #define p4d_t	pgd_t	

On ARC 2-level code:

   free_pte_range
	pmd_pgtable(*pmd);

	    ((((((*pmd).pud).pgd))) & PAGE_MASK));	     <-- 5LEVEL_HACK
			vs.
	    ((((((((*pmd).pud).p4d).pgd)))) & PAGE_MASK ));  <-- w/o 5LEVEL_HACK
	
	pmd_clear(pmd);

	    *(pmd)).pud).pgd)))) = 0
			vs.
	    *(pmd)).pud).p4d).pgd)))) = 0


So we may not be able to fix all he historical misgivigs, but this might alleviate
the pain a bit. I'll try to dabble a bit.

Thx for taking a look and te ACKs.
