There are arhcitectures that don't use asm-generic/pgalloc.h but rather
have their own, sometimes completely different, versoins of these
funcitons.

I've tried adding linux/pgalloc.h, but I've ended up with contradicting
need to include asm/pgalloc.h before the generic code for some
architecures or after the generic code for others :)

I think let's leave it in mm.h for now, maybe after several more cleaups
we could do better.
