Unneeded empty line.

Maybe just

	vaddr = PAGE_OFFSET;

?

We do have 'vaddr' already.

	pgd = pgd_offset_k(vaddr);

p?d_index() has to be called on the virtual address. It shouldn't break
anything, but it's wrong from conceptual point of view.

I don't think need paddr at all in the function.

BTW, any reason we cannot use p?d_offset() instead of playing with
p?d_index() directly?
