I think Kirill meant something like e.g. the arch_enter_lazy_mmu_mode()
is implemented and called in mm/mremap.c -- the "generic" part is in the
include/asm-generic/pgtable.h and those architectures willing to have
their own implementation are in arch/$arch/...

Kirill, if I'm right with it, can you suggest the header where to put
the "generic" mremap hook's (empty) body?
