Subject[PATCH v5 06/17] asm-generic: mm_hooks: allow hooks to be overridden individually
From: Mark Rutland <>

Currently, an architecture must either implement all of the mm hooks
itself, or use all of those provided by the asm-generic implementation.
When an architecture only needs to override a single hook, it must copy
the stub implementations from the asm-generic version.

To avoid this repetition, allow each hook to be overridden indiviually,
by placing each under an #ifndef block. As architectures providing their
own hooks can't include this file today, this shouldn't adversely affect
any existing hooks.
