I would rather say completely ignore the setting of amdgpu_vm_size here 
and always use 256TB for GFX9.

Allocating a PD smaller than 4K doesn't make much sense cause you don't 
save anything.

So the only valid approach would be to switch between 1, 2, 3 and 4 
levels when the VM size changes and that doesn't make to much sense to 
me because the saved memory is minimal (4K for each level).
