Yes, sorry about that for lack of access to non-x86-64 machines. I
needed to move the function prototype to hugetlb.h and evidently
removed the #ifdef by mistake. I'm not going to touch this in my next
clean up patch, instead I will just declare char specific
file_operations struct in hugetlbfs and then have char device
reference it.

But nevertheless, hugetlb_get_unmapped_area function prototype better
be in a header file somewhere.
