Hi John,

I did set *pageshift. The if statement above sets *pageshift. ps was
used to retrive the pageshift value when the pte_lookup functions were
present. ps was passed by reference to those functions and set by them.
But here since we are trying to remove those functions, we don't need ps
and we directly set *pageshift to HPAGE_SHIFT or PAGE_SHIFT based on the
type of vma. 

Hope this clears things up?

Thank you
