Subject: [PATCH] ia64: fix build failure caused by memory model changes

From: Mike Rapoport <>

The change of ia64's default memory model to SPARSEMEM causes defconfig
build to fail:

 1156 | #error Allocator MAX_ORDER exceeds SECTION_SIZE
      |  ^~~~~

The error cause is the missing definition of PAGE_SHIFT in the calculation

Add include of <asm/page.h> to arch/ia64/include/asm/sparsemem.h to solve
the problem.

Fixes: 214496cb1870 ("ia64: make SPARSEMEM default and disable DISCONTIGMEM")

Surprisingly, only Guenter's bot caught this.

@Andrew, if you prefer I can take this via memblock tree.
