I know arm64 checks the bits directly, but the arm32 code is a bit
more fiddly and I have mixed feelings about copying and pasting
the checks. It would be cleaner if we could take advantage of
the existing pg_level and bits arrays. I also don't have my heart
set on this so if nobody else objects, the code can stay as is.

Thanks,
Laura
