I played with this a bit and ended up with

pfn = pte_pfn(*pte) | PFN_DOWN(address & page_level_mask(level - 1));

Unless I got something terribly wrong, this should do the
same (see the attached patch) as the existing calculations.

Subject: [PATCH] x86/fault: Simplify PFN calculation in
handle_user_rmp_fault()

Use functions in asm/pgtable.h to calculate the PFN for the address inside
PTE's page directory. PG_LEVEL_4K PTE's obviously do not have a page
directory but it is not an issue as:

page_level_mask(PG_LEVEL_4K - 1) ==
page_level_mask(PG_LEVEL_NONE) ==
0
