Subject[PATCH v6 00/20] Implement use of HW assistance on TLB table walk on 8xx
The purpose of this serie is to implement hardware assistance for TLB table walk
on the 8xx.

First part prepares for using HW assistance in TLB routines:
- Reverts a former patch which broke SWAP on the 8xx
- move book3s64 page fragment code in a common part for reusing it by the
8xx as 16k page size mode still uses 4k page tables.
- switches to patch_site instead of patch_instruction, as it makes the code
clearer and avoids pollution with global symbols.
- Optimise access to perf counters (hence reducing number of registers used)

Second part implements HW assistance in TLB routines in the following steps:
- Disable 16k page size mode and 512k hugepages
- Switch 4k to HW assistance
- Bring back 512k hugepages
- Bring back 16k page size mode.

Tested successfully on 8xx.

This serie applies after the two following series:
- [v2 00/24] ban the use of _PAGE_XXX flags outside platform specific code (
- [v2,1/4] powerpc/mm: enable the use of page table cache of order 0 (

Successfull compilation on kisskb (v5)

Successfull compilation on kisskb (v4)

Successfull compilation on following defconfigs (v3):

Successfull compilation on following defconfigs (v2):

Changes in v6:
- Droped the part related to handling GUARD attribute at PGD/PMD level.
- Moved the commonalisation of page_fragment in the begining (this part has been reviewed by Aneesh)
- Rebased on today merge branch (19 Oct)

Changes in v5:
- Also avoid useless lock in get_pmd_from_cache()
- A new patch to relocate mmu headers in platform specific directories
- A new patch to distribute pgtable_t typedefs in platform specific
mmu headers instead of the uggly #ifdef
- Moved early_pte_alloc_kernel() in platform specific pgalloc
- Restricted definition of PTE_FRAG_SIZE and PTE_FRAG_NR to platforms
using the pte fragmentation.
- arch_exit_mmap() and destroy_pagetable_cache() are now platform specific.

Changes in v4:
- Reordered the serie to put at the end the modifications which makes
L1 and L2 entries independant.
- No modifications to ppc64 ioremap (we still have an opportunity to
merge them, for a future patch serie)
- 8xx code modified to use patch_site instead of patch_instruction
to get a clearer code and avoid object pollution with global symbols
- Moved perf counters in first 32kb of memory to optimise access
- Split the big bang to HW assistance in several steps:
1. Temporarily removes support of 16k pages and 512k hugepages
2. Change TLB routines to use HW assistance for 4k pages and 8M hugepages
3. Add back support for 512k hugepages
4. Add back support for 16k pages (using pte_fragment as page tables are still 4k)

Changes in v3:
- Fixed an issue in the 09/14 when CONFIG_PIN_TLB_TEXT was not enabled
- Added performance measurement in the 09/14 commit log
- Rebased on latest 'powerpc/merge' tree, which conflicted with 13/14

Changes in v2:
- Removed the 3 first patchs which have been applied already
- Fixed compilation errors reported by Michael
- Squashed the commonalisation of ioremap functions into a single patch
- Fixed the use of pte_fragment
- Added a patch optimising perf counting of TLB misses and instructions
