I initially thought it would be enough to put it into
<asm-generic/mmu_context.h>, expecting it works as
<asm-generic/pgtable.h>. But that's not the case.

It probably worth at some point rework all <asm/mmu_context.h> to include
<asm-generic/mmu_context.h> at the end as we do for <asm/pgtable.h>.
But that's outside the scope of the patchset, I guess.

I don't see any better candidate for such dummy header. :-/
