mm: allow arch code to control the user page table ceiling
On architectures where a pgd entry may be shared between user and kernel (e.g. ARM+LPAE), freeing page tables needs a ceiling other than 0. This patch introduces a generic USER_PGTABLES_CEILING that arch code can override. It is the responsibility of the arch code setting the ceiling to ensure the complete freeing of the page tables (usually in pgd_free()).
