powerpc/mm: Bring hugepage PTE accessor functions back into sync with normal accessors
The hugepage arch code provides a number of hook functions/macros which mirror the functionality of various normal page pte access functions. Various changes in the normal page accessors (in particular BenH's recent changes to the handling of lazy icache flushing and PAGE_EXEC) have caused the hugepage versions to get out of sync with the originals. In some cases, this is a bug, at least on some MMU types. One of the reasons that some hooks were not identical to the normal page versions, is that the fact we're dealing with a hugepage needed to be passed down do use the correct dcache-icache flush function. This patch makes the main flush_dcache_icache_page() function hugepage aware (by checking for the PageCompound flag). That in turn means we can make set_huge_pte_at() just a call to set_pte_at() bringing it back into sync. As a bonus, this lets us remove the hash_huge_page_do_lazy_icache() function, replacing it with a call to the hash_page_do_lazy_icache() function it was based on. Some other hugepage pte access hooks - huge_ptep_get_and_clear() and huge_ptep_clear_flush() - are not so easily unified, but this patch at least brings them back into sync with the current versions of the corresponding normal page functions.
