Does this apply to all non-FSL 64-bit book3e, or is there anything else
that is still in use?

Ifdeffing the PUD level doesn't make much sense in this case (other than
perhaps as the least intrusive way to make the error go away) because
that codepath is specific to e6500 which doesn't support 64K pages.  The
whole e6500 section should be ifdeffed out if there are 64K pages (or
really, if CONFIG_PPC_FSL_BOOK3E isn't defined, and 64K pages should
conflict with PPC_FSL_BOOK3E).
