ARC: mm: Introduce explicit super page size support
MMUv4 supports 2 concurrent page sizes: Normal and Super [4K to 16M]
So far Linux supported a single super page size for a given Normal page,
depending on the software page walking address split.
e.g. we had 11:8:13 address split for 8K page, which meant super page
was 2 ^(8+13) = 2M (given that THP size has to be PMD_SHIFT)
Now we turn this around, by allowing multiple Super Pages in Kconfig
(currently 2M and 16M only) and forcing page walker address split to
PGDIR_SHIFT and PAGE_SHIFT
For configs without Super page, things are same as before and
PGDIR_SHIFT can be hacked to get non default address split
The motivation for this change is a customer who needs 16M super page
and a 8K Normal page combo.
