Subject[PATCH] powerpc/mm: Export HPAGE_SHIFT
Drivers may want to take advantage of the large pages used for memory obtained
from hugetlbfs. One example is mlx4_ib which can use much less MTT entries (in
the order of HPAGE_SIZE / PAGE_SIZE) when registering such memory, thus scale
significantly better when registering larger memory regions. Other drivers
could also benefit from this.
