Fine, keep it for that (though I'd argue that if that were the concern,
we should have been clearing it before we enter the OS, and the Os can
set it if it wants).  But what about in write_tlb, or tlb.c?

There's obviously an existing attempt to avoid touching MAS7 if
CONFIG_ENABLE_36BIT_PHYS is not set.  Either that's unnecessary and we
should remove it, or we should continue adhering to it.
