Correct, PowerPC has:

    #define PMD_SHIFT (PAGE_SHIFT + PTE_INDEX_SIZE)
    #define PTE_INDEX_SIZE  __pte_index_size

...where __pte_index_size is variable established at kernel init time.

Yes, it turns out that PowerPC has no real need for subsection support
since they were already using small 16MB sections from day one.

> Will subsection_map_init handle this right?

Yes, should work as subsection_map_index() will always return 0. Which
means that 'end' will always be 0:

    pfns = min(nr_pages, PAGES_PER_SECTION
        - (pfn & ~PAGE_SECTION_MASK));
    end = subsection_map_index(pfn + pfns - 1);

...and then the bitmap manipulation:

    bitmap_set(ms->usage->subsection_map, idx, end - idx + 1);

...will only ever set bit0.
