Yes, I also noticed this before, powerpc uses radix__arch_get_unmapped_area*() 
when CONFIG_PPC_RADIX_MMU opened as 'y' and radix_enabled() returns 
true. However, powerpc implemented its own hugetlb_get_unmapped_area(). This
patch actually has no effect on powerpc.

I agree with you. It's clever to switch the if/else order. If there is such
a case, mm->get_unmapped_area() is neihter arch_get_unmapped_area() nor
arch_get_unmapped_area_topdown(), it is indeed more appropriate to make the
bottomup routine as the default behavior.

May I put this code and comment you show above into patch v6 and add 
"Signed-off-by: Mike Kravetz <mike.kravetz@...cle.com>" to it?
