Subject: [PATCH] mm/damon/vaddr: Include 'highmem.h' to fix a build failure

Commit 0ff28922686c ("mm/damon/vaddr: separate commonly usable
functions") in -mm tree[1] moves include of 'highmem.h' from 'vaddr.c'
to 'prmtv-common.c', though the code for the header is still in
'vaddr.c'.  As a result, build with 'CONFIG_HIGHPTE' fails as below:

    In file included from ../include/linux/mm.h:33:0,
                      from ../include/linux/kallsyms.h:13,
                      from ../include/linux/bpf.h:20,
                      from ../include/linux/bpf-cgroup.h:5,
                      from ../include/linux/cgroup-defs.h:22,
                      from ../include/linux/cgroup.h:28,
                      from ../include/linux/hugetlb.h:9,
                      from ../mm/damon/vaddr.c:11:
    ../mm/damon/vaddr.c: In function ‘damon_mkold_pmd_entry’:
    ../include/linux/pgtable.h:97:12: error: implicit declaration of function ‘kmap_atomic’; did you mean ‘mcopy_atomic’? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]

       pte_t *__pte = pte_offset_map(pmd, address); \

       pte = pte_offset_map_lock(walk->mm, pmd, addr, &ptl);
    ../include/linux/pgtable.h:99:24: error: implicit declaration of function ‘kunmap_atomic’; did you mean ‘in_atomic’? [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
      #define pte_unmap(pte) kunmap_atomic((pte))
    ../include/linux/mm.h:2384:2: note: in expansion of macro ‘pte_unmap’
       pte_unmap(pte);     \
    ../mm/damon/vaddr.c:392:2: note: in expansion of macro ‘pte_unmap_unlock’
       pte_unmap_unlock(pte, ptl);

This commit fixes the issue by moving the include back to 'vaddr.c'.
