Subject: Re: linux-next: build failure after merge of the akpm-current tree

I believe this might be caused by a patch for powerpc enabling HAVE_ARCH_HUGE_VMAP
without an arch_ioremap_p4d_supported() definition.

All it needs is a powerpc definition for arch_ioremap_p4d_supported() which can just
return false if it is not supported. Shall I send a patch for the powerpc fix or just
re-spin the original patch which added arch_ioremap_p4d_supported(). Please suggest.

Today's linux-next (next-20190625) does not have powerpc subscribing HAVE_ARCH_HUGE_VMAP.
Could you please point to the branch I should pull for this failure. Thanks !
