OK...  Looking through my old notes on kmap unification (this winter, never
went anywhere),

* arch/mips/mm/cache.c ought to use linux/highmem.h, not asm/highmem.h
I suspect that your series doesn't build on some configs there.  Hadn't
verified that, though.

* kmap_atomic_to_page() is dead, but not quite gone - csky and nds32 brought
the damn thing back (nds32 - only an extern).  It needs killin'...

* parisc is (arguably) abusing kunmap()/kunmap_atomic() for cache flushing.
Replace the bulk of its highmem.h with
#define ARCH_HAS_FLUSH_ON_KUNMAP
#define arch_before_kunmap flush_kernel_dcache_page_addr
and have default kunmap()/kunmap_atomic() do
#ifdef ARCH_HAS_FLUSH_ON_KUNMAP
	arch_before_kunmap(page_address(page));
#endif
and
#ifdef ARCH_HAS_FLUSH_ON_KUNMAP
	arch_before_kunmap(addr);
#endif
resp.  Kills ARCH_HAS_KMAP along with ifdefs on it, makes parisc use somewhat
less hacky.

I'd suggest checking various configs on mips - that's likely to cause headache.
Said that, my analysis of include chains back then is pretty much worthless
by now - I really hate the amount of indirect include chains leading to that
sucker on some, but not all configs ;-/  IIRC, the proof that everything
using kmap*/kunmap* would pull linux/highmem.h regardless of config took several
hours of digging, ran for several pages and had been hopelessly brittle.
arch/mips/mm/cache.c was the only exception caught by it, but these days
there might be more.
