nommu: provide follow_pfn().
With the introduction of follow_pfn() as an exported symbol, modules have begun making use of it. Unfortunately this was not reflected on nommu at the time, so the in-tree users have subsequently all blown up with link errors there. This provides a simple follow_pfn() that just returns addr >> PAGE_SHIFT, which will do the right thing on nommu. There is no need to do range checking within the vma, as the find_vma() case will already take care of this. Signed-off-by: Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org>
