Why this will confuse you? I think it is inconsistent that kernel PTE
page tables are not accounted, because we will account PMD/PUD level
page tables no matter they are userspace pagetable pages or kernel
pagetable pages.

Moreover the the vmalloc()/vmap() can consume some kernel pagetable
pages, which should be accounted.
