Subject[PATCH] Compile error in 2.5.69-bk18 + DRM + HIGHMEM

I'm getting an error when compiling 2.5.69-bk18 with DRM and HIGHMEM
support for Athlon:

In file included from drivers/char/drm/radeon_drv.c:49:
drivers/char/drm/drm_memory.h: In function `drm_ioremapfree':
drivers/char/drm/drm_memory.h:170: `PKMAP_BASE' undeclared (first use in this function)
drivers/char/drm/drm_memory.h:170: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
drivers/char/drm/drm_memory.h:170: for each function it appears in.)

PKMAP_BASE is defined in include/asm-i386/highmem.h and is used in
include/asm-i386/pgtable.h to define VMALLOC_END, which is used in

Unfortunately, including <asm/highmem.h> from pgtable.h doesn't help, and
I don't see how to untangle this dependency without changing many other

This patch helps and it may be OK to apply because it only affects the
file that has compile problems, i.e. drm_memory.h:
