The AMD Fam10h CPUs support new Gigabyte page table entry for
mapping 1GB at a time. Use this for the kernel direct mapping.

Only done for 64bit because i386 does not support GB page tables.

This only applies to the data portion of the direct mapping; the
kernel text mapping stays with 2MB pages because the AMD Fam10h
microarchitecture does not support GB ITLBs and AMD recommends
against using GB mappings for code.

GBpage are disabled when DEBUG_PAGEALLOC is enabled, because
DEBUG_PAGEALLOC causes recursion in cpa() and with gbpages
the potential max recursion depth is much deeper.

Can be disabled with direct_gbpages=off
