Subject[RESEND RFC PATCH 1/1] linux/mm.h: canonicalize macro PAGE_ALIGNED() definition
Date
From: zijun_hu <zijun_hu@htc.com>

macro PAGE_ALIGNED() is prone to cause error because it doesn't follow
convention to parenthesize parameter @addr within macro body, for example
unsigned long *ptr = kmalloc(...); PAGE_ALIGNED(ptr + 16);
for the left parameter of macro IS_ALIGNED(), (unsigned long)(ptr + 16)
is desired but the actual one is (unsigned long)ptr + 16

it is fixed by simply canonicalizing macro PAGE_ALIGNED() definition
