I ran into build errors on ARM after Willy's newly added generic
TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE_PUD support. We don't support this feature
on ARM at all, but the patch causes a build error anyway:

In file included from ../kernel/memremap.c:17:0:
../include/linux/pfn_t.h:108:7: error: 'pud_mkdevmap' declared as function returning an array
 pud_t pud_mkdevmap(pud_t pud);

We don't use a PUD on ARM, so pud_t is defined as pmd_t, which
in turn is defined as

typedef unsigned long pgd_t[2];

on NOMMU and on 2-level MMU configurations. There is an (unused)
other definition using a struct around the array, which happens to
work fine here.

There is a comment in the file about the fact the other version
is "easier on the compiler", and I've traced that version back
to linux-2.1.80 when ARM support was first merged back in 1998.

It's probably a safe assumption that this is no longer necessary:
The same logic existed in asm-i386 at the time but was removed
a year later in 2.3.23pre3. The STRICT_MM_TYPECHECKS logic
also ended up getting copied into these files:


We should probably remove it everywhere, but for the moment,
this minimal patch gets things to compile on linux-next.
