Subject[PATCH v9 12/21] mm: pagewalk: Allow walking without vma
Date
Since 48684a65b4e3: "mm: pagewalk: fix misbehavior of walk_page_range
for vma(VM_PFNMAP)", page_table_walk() will report any kernel area as
a hole, because it lacks a vma.

This means each arch has re-implemented page table walking when needed,
for example in the per-arch ptdump walker.

Remove the requirement to have a vma except when trying to split huge
pages.
