After commit 966b9016a1, zcache_put_page() was modified to pass
page_address(page) instead of the actual page pointer. In
combination with the function signature changes to tmem_put()
and zcache_pampd_create(), zcache_pampd_create() tries to (re)derive
the page structure from the virtual address.  However, if the
original page is a high memory page (or any unmapped page),
this virt_to_page() fails because the page_address() in
zcache_put_page() returned NULL.

This patch changes zcache_put_page() and zcache_get_page() to pass
the page structure instead of the page's virtual address, which
may or may not exist.

Please disregard, I sent this one out before on 8/10 :-/

Sorry for the noise.

I couldn't find the original post in the LKML archives, 
so I thought I had never sent it.  Turns out that I only 
sent it to the driver project list.
