This text explains what the patch does but not why it does it. Always provide
both, please. That way people will stop asking why this:

urgh. I wouldn't say the result of this "cleanup" is very clean.
Basically all the macros there should be zapped and turned into inlines.
That will happen to fix the bug in ia64's is_hugepage_only_range(), which
presently references its arg once or twice, and will do bad things if
called with an expression-with-side-effects.

This is bad too, because it can lead to unused-var warnings if compiled
with suitable config combinations.

So basically the existing hugetlb arch support code needs a big de-macro
crapectomy. But your patch has gone and massively duplicated the existing
crap, making that decrapectomy larger and harder.
