I just think having a function called "inside_linear_region()" as well as a
macro called "__is_lm_address()" is weird when they have completely separate
implementations. They're obviously trying to do the same thing, just the
first one gets given physical address as parameters.

Implementing one in terms of the other is much better for maintenance.
