xen/page-sizes.h or xen/page-defs.h? I don't like page.h very much
because the per-arch headers of that name have a certain purpose
already, and as that's connected to actual page sizes in use on a
system I wouldn't want to see other page sizes to appear in a
header with that name. But if others think page.h is a good name, I
could live with it.
