Subject: linux-next: build failure after merge of the nvdimm tree

Hi Dan,

After merging the nvdimm tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
ppc64_defconfig) failed like this:

In file included from arch/powerpc/kernel/asm-offsets.c:22:0:
include/linux/mman.h: In function 'calc_vm_flag_bits':
include/linux/mman.h:109:48: warning: division by zero [-Wdiv-by-zero]
   ((bit1) <= (bit2) ? ((x) & (bit1)) * ((bit2) / (bit1)) \
include/linux/mman.h:133:9: note: in expansion of macro '_calc_vm_trans'
         _calc_vm_trans(flags, MAP_SYNC,      VM_SYNC      );
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

and more like these ...

Caused by commit

  ebd0722a382c ("mm: Define MAP_SYNC and VM_SYNC flags")

Not all architectures use asm-generic/mman.h

I have used the nvdimm tree from next-20171102 for today.
