As the patch has been dropped from Linux next (next-20200304) perhaps in
order to fold back the __pa_symbol() fix [1], so I am planning to respin
the original patch once more as V15 while adding Qian's signed off by for
the powerpc part. For now lets enable radix MMU ppc64 along with existing
ppc32. As PPC_RADIX_MMU depends on PPC_BOOK3S_64, the following change
should be good enough ?
