Subject: [PATCH v2 03/17] mm: add generic __va_function and __pa_function macros

With CONFIG_CFI_CLANG, the compiler replaces function addresses
in instrumented C code with jump table addresses. This means that
__pa_symbol(function) returns the physical address of the jump table
entry instead of the actual function, which may not work as the jump
table code will immediately jump to a virtual address that may not be
mapped.

To avoid this address space confusion, this change adds generic
definitions for __va_function and __pa_function, which architectures
that support CFI can override. The typical implementation of the
__va_function macro would use inline assembly to take the function
address, which avoids compiler instrumentation.
