It frankly looks like magic to me. How can this possibly work without
ensuring that asm/mktme.h is #included everywhere on every file compiled
for the entire architecture?

If we look at every definition of page_to_virt() on every architecture
in the kernel, we see it uniquely defined in headers that look rather
generic. I don't see any precedent for feature-specific definitions.

*If* you do this, I think it 100% *HAS* to be done in a central header,
like x86's page.h. We need a single x86 macro for this, not something
which can and will change based on #include ordering and Kconfig.
