I was recently going over all users of PG_reserved. Short story: it is
difficult and sometimes not really clear if setting/checking for
PG_reserved is only a relict from the past. Easy to break things.

I had way more cleanups in this series inititally,
but some architectures take PG_reserved as a way to apply a different
caching strategy (for MMIO pages). So I decided to only include the most
obvious changes (that are less likely to break something).

So let's see if the documentation update for PG_reserved I crafted
actually covers most cases or if there is plenty more.

Most notably, for device memory we can hopefully soon stop setting
it PG_reserved

I only briefly tested this on s390x.

David Hildenbrand (7):
  agp: efficeon: no need to set PG_reserved on GATT tables
  s390/vdso: don't clear PG_reserved
  powerpc/vdso: don't clear PG_reserved
  riscv/vdso: don't clear PG_reserved
  m68k/mm: use __ClearPageReserved()
  arm64: kexec: no need to ClearPageReserved()
  mm: better document PG_reserved
