There is no serie here, this is about solving Kconfig for HMM given
that device driver are going through their own tree we want to avoid
changing them from the mm tree. So plan is:

1 - Kernel release N add the new Kconfig to mm/Kconfig (this patch)
2 - Kernel release N+1 update driver to depend on new Kconfig ie
stop using ARCH_HASH_HMM and start using ARCH_HAS_HMM_MIRROR
and ARCH_HAS_HMM_DEVICE (one or the other or both depending
on the driver)
3 - Kernel release N+2 remove ARCH_HASH_HMM and do final Kconfig
update in mm/Kconfig

This has been discuss in the past and while it is bit painfull it
is the easiest solution (outside git topic branch but mm tree is
not merge as git).

Cheers,
Jérôme
