Yeah. That will be much cleaner. Thanks. I will change it to have
function pointers
instead of if else blocks.

If __get_free_page is failing here, something is seriously wrong and
the system should panic.
But I agree with you that this should happen in the caller rather than
the callee.
We need to change the signature of each create_*_mapping function
in order to propagate the error to the caller. Do you see any issues with that ?
As it will affect page table allocation for all three cases, should we
consolidate all the BUG()
cases in caller only ?

Not sure if I understand the question correctly. Before MMU is enabled,
we are using statically allocated early_pmd.
