      mm: Pass virtual address to [__]p{te,ud,md}_free_tlb()
      
      Upcoming paches to support the new 64-bit "BookE" powerpc architecture
      will need to have the virtual address corresponding to PTE page when
      freeing it, due to the way the HW table walker works.
      
      Basically, the TLB can be loaded with "large" pages that cover the whole
      virtual space (well, sort-of, half of it actually) represented by a PTE
      page, and which contain an "indirect" bit indicating that this TLB entry
      RPN points to an array of PTEs from which the TLB can then create direct
      entries. Thus, in order to invalidate those when PTE pages are deleted,
      we need the virtual address to pass to tlbilx or tlbivax instructions.
      
      The old trick of sticking it somewhere in the PTE page struct page sucks
      too much, the address is almost readily available in all call sites and
      almost everybody implemets these as macros, so we may as well add the
      argument everywhere. I added it to the pmd and pud variants for consistency.

      [PATCH] Standardize pxx_page macros · 46a82b2d
      Dave McCracken authored
      One of the changes necessary for shared page tables is to standardize the
      pxx_page macros.  pte_page and pmd_page have always returned the struct
      page associated with their entry, while pte_page_kernel and pmd_page_kernel
      have returned the kernel virtual address.  pud_page and pgd_page, on the
      other hand, return the kernel virtual address.
      
      Shared page tables needs pud_page and pgd_page to return the actual page
      structures.  There are very few actual users of these functions, so it is
      simple to standardize their usage.
      
      Since this is basic cleanup, I am submitting these changes as a standalone
      patch.  Per Hugh Dickins' comments about it, I am also changing the
      pxx_page_kernel macros to pxx_page_vaddr to clarify their meaning.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
