kmap_atomic: make kunmap_atomic() harder to misuse
kunmap_atomic() is currently at level -4 on Rusty's "Hard To Misuse" list[1] ("Follow common convention and you'll get it wrong"), except in some architectures when CONFIG_DEBUG_HIGHMEM is set[2][3]. kunmap() takes a pointer to a struct page; kunmap_atomic(), however, takes takes a pointer to within the page itself. This seems to once in a while trip people up (the convention they are following is the one from kunmap()). Make it much harder to misuse, by moving it to level 9 on Rusty's list[4] ("The compiler/linker won't let you get it wrong"). This is done by refusing to build if the type of its first argument is a pointer to a struct page. The real kunmap_atomic() is renamed to kunmap_atomic_notypecheck() (which is what you would call in case for some strange reason calling it with a pointer to a struct page is not incorrect in your code). The previous version of this patch was compile tested on x86-64. [1] http://ozlabs.org/~rusty/index.cgi/tech/2008-04-01.html [2] In these cases, it is at level 5, "Do it right or it will always break at runtime." [3] At least mips and powerpc look very similar, and sparc also seems to share a common ancestor with both; there seems to be quite some degree of copy-and-paste coding here. The include/asm/highmem.h file for these three archs mention x86 CPUs at its top. [4] http://ozlabs.org/~rusty/index.cgi/tech/2008-03-30.html [5] As an aside, could someone tell me why mn10300 uses unsigned long as the first parameter of kunmap_atomic() instead of void *?
