I'm not too sure what's going on here, but i386 allmodconfig broke.

kernel/resource.c: In function '__request_free_mem_region':
kernel/resource.c:1653:28: error: 'PA_SECTION_SHIFT' undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean 'SECTIONS_PGSHIFT'?
  size = ALIGN(size, 1UL << PA_SECTION_SHIFT);

because in current mainline, allmodconfig produces
CONFIG_DEVICE_PRIVATE=n but in current linux-next, allmodconfig
produces CONFIG_DEVICE_PRIVATE=y.  But CONFIG_SPARSEMEM=n so the build
breaks.

Bisection fingers this commit, but reverting it doesn't seem to fix
things.  Could you take a look please?

I'm seeing this from menuconfig:

WARNING: unmet direct dependencies detected for DEVICE_PRIVATE
  Depends on [n]: ZONE_DEVICE [=n]
  Selected by [m]:
  - DRM_NOUVEAU_SVM [=y] && HAS_IOMEM [=y] && DRM_NOUVEAU [=m] && MMU [=y] && STAGING [=y]
  - TEST_HMM [=m] && RUNTIME_TESTING_MENU [=y] && TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE [=y]

`select' rather sucks this way - easy to break dependencies.  Quite a
number of years ago the Kconfig gurus were saying "avoid", but I don't
recall the details.
