And now you've just broken every non-blackfin nommu platform, as you've
only defined MAP_SPLIT_PAGES in asm-blackfin/mman.h.

of things were test compiled for at least one platform that isn't yours,
so the obviously broken stuff is fixed before it's posted and someone
else has to find out about it later.
