This is too ugly to live. My personal solution would be to remove the pgd
cache altogether from the generic code. If "check_pgd_table" isn't
generic, it shouldn't be in the generic code.

The other question that props up is that _why_ doesn't check_pgd_table()
work as expected? Sounds like a bug in the whole design to me.
