Having dug for a bit, I think you're right in asserting that pmd_sect()
should cover those.

I had worried that wouldn't cater for contiguous pmd entries, but those
have to be contiguous section entries, so they get picked up.

That said, do we have any special handling for contiguous PTEs? We use
those in kernel mappings regardless of hugetlb support, and I didn't
spot a pte_large() helper.

Thanks,
Mark.
