Yes, p4d and pud don't need to be handled here, as the code is 32-bit
only and there p4d is folded anyway. Pud is only relevant for PAE and
will already be mapped when the page-table is created (for performance
reasons, because pud is top-level at PAE and mapping it later requires a
TLB flush).
The pud with PAE also never changes during the life-time of the
page-table because we can't map a huge-page there. I will put that into
a comment.

Thanks,

	Joerg
