32-bit Kernel for loongson2e currently use 16KB page size to avoid
cache alias problem.So, the definiton of PGDIR_SHIFT muse be 12+14.

Using 22 in 16K page size do not lead to a serious problem but the number
of pages allocated for page table is more than previous. (cat
/proc/vmstat | grep nr_page_table_pages)

It's been tested on FuLong mini PC(loongson2e inside).
