Aneesh Kumar K.V - April 28, 2013, 7:37 p.m.
From: "Aneesh Kumar K.V" <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

With PGD_INDEX_SIZE set to 12 the existing macro doesn't work. Fix it to
use PTRS_PER_PGD

The idea originally was to have one more bit in the result of
pgd_index() than PGD_INDEX_SIZE, so that if one had an address
corresponding to the last PGD entry, and then incremented that address
by PGD_SIZE, and took pgd_index() of that, you wouldn't end up with
zero.  The commit that introduced that dates back to 2002, and the
code that was sensitive to that edge case has long since been
refactored (several times), so there is no need for it these days.
