More to that, when building (linux-next tag: next-20180724) on arm 32
there is this build error when CONFIG_MMU is enabled, asm-generic/tlb.h
isn't included, see arch/arm/include/asm/tlb.h.

CC mm/memory.o
mm/memory.c: In function ‘tlb_remove_table_smp_sync’:
mm/memory.c:339:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘tlb_flush_remove_tables_local’; did you mean ‘tlb_remove_table’? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
tlb_flush_remove_tables_local(mm);
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
tlb_remove_table
mm/memory.c: In function ‘tlb_table_flush’:
mm/memory.c:372:2: error: implicit declaration of function ‘tlb_flush_remove_tables’; did you mean ‘tlb_remove_table’? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
tlb_flush_remove_tables(tlb->mm);
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
tlb_remove_table


Alternative could be setting in every architecture's asm/tlb.h but that
doesn't make much sense. Other way would be to include prototype in
arch/arm/include/asm/tlb.h, not sure if that would be the best. Is
there any other place this could be defined for fixing issue in arm 32
bit ?


Cheers,
Anders
