Actually it is typical modern Linux style to just provide a prototype
and then use "if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_FOO))" to guard the call(s) to it.

As mentioned I plan to remove arch_dma_mmap_pgprot for 5.4, so I'd
rather avoid churn for the short period of time.

Do you have a suggestion for a better name?  I'm pretty bad at naming,
so just reusing the arm name seemed like a good way to avoid having
to make naming decisions myself.
