Well.  You had every right to assume that an all-caps macro is a
compile-time constant.

We are innocent victims of Kirill's c65e774fb3f6af2 ("x86/mm: Make
PGDIR_SHIFT and PTRS_PER_P4D variable") which lazily converted these
macros into runtime-only, under some Kconfig settings.  It should have
changed those macros into static inlined lower-case functions.
