This patchset cleans up hugetlbfs architecture headers and adds new
primitives as preparation for the s390 large page support. Most notably
we found that we need to add a new tlb flush for the copy-on-write of
a large page (patch #2). We think that this is a bug, but obviously one
that hasn't shown up so far on any of the other large page architectures.
