Subject[PATCH] mm/zsmalloc: include sparsemem.h for MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS
Most architectures define MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS in asm/sparsemem.h and don't
include it in asm/pgtable.h. Include asm/sparsemem.h directly to get
the MAX_PHYSMEM_BITS define on all architectures.

This fixes a crash when accessing zram on 32-bit ARM platform with LPAE and
more than 4GB of memory:
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000
