Anshuman Khandual July 13, 2020, 3:23 a.m. UTC
This adds a specific description file for all arch page table helpers which
is in sync with the semantics being tested via CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE. All
future changes either to these descriptions here or the debug test should
always remain in sync.

+===============================
+Architecture Page Table Helpers
+===============================
+
+Generic MM expects architectures (with MMU) to provide helpers to create, access
+and modify page table entries at various level for different memory functions.
+These page table helpers need to conform to a common semantics across platforms.
+Following tables describe the expected semantics which can also be tested during
+boot via CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGTABLE option. All future changes in here or the debug
+test need to be in sync.
