[POWERPC] unmap_vm_area becomes unmap_kernel_range for the public

This makes unmap_vm_area static and a wrapper around a new
exported unmap_kernel_range that takes an explicit range instead
of a vm_area struct.

This makes it more versatile for code that wants to play with kernel
page tables outside of the standard vmalloc area.

(One example is some rework of the PowerPC PCI IO space mapping
code that depends on that patch and removes some code duplication
and horrible abuse of forged struct vm_struct).

There exists another whole class of cpu cache issues which currently
require a whole different set of interfaces to handle properly.
