I wonder how we never hit this issue before. Are you testing PowerNV
and/or pSeries ?
Could you share a FreeBDS image with us ?
I've hit this issue while testing PowerNV. With pSeries it doesn't happen.
It can be reproduced by trying to boot this iso:
It is easier to reproduce it using power8/powernv8.

What about creating HPTE64_R_R_BYTEand HPTE64_R_C_BYTE, with the values 14 and
to make it clear that these are byte offsets within a PTE?
