Actually hugepages work fine on all Ingenic SoCs I tested with, from 
JZ4740 upwards, with the VTLB, so this is incorrect.

That's good info, please consider adding that in the comment and in the 
commit message, and maybe also change the last sentence to reflect 
what's actually going on with the infinite loop after the tlbmiss.
