We use section maps with 4K page size to create the
swapper/idmaps. So far we have used !64K or 4K checks
to handle the case where we use the section maps. This
patch adds a symbol to make it clear those cases.

That sentence does not make sense.

I agree. How about :

"This patch adds a new symbol, 'ARM64_SWAPPER_USES_SECTION_MAPS', to
handle cases where we use section maps, instead of using the page size
