That is the only use I'm currently aware of.

If no-one has any objections to dropping the holes in the output, then I
can rebase on something like below and drop this 'depth' patch.

Subject: [PATCH] x86: mm: Hide page table holes in debugfs

For the /sys/kernel/debug/page_tables/ files, rather than outputing a
mostly empty line when a block of memory isn't present just skip the
line. This keeps the output shorter and will help with a future change
switching to using the generic page walk code as we no longer care about
the 'level' that the page table holes are at.
