[PATCH v2 05/21] powerpc: Avoid comparison of unsigned long >= 0 in pfn_valid

Rewrite comparison since all values compared are of type `unsigned long`.

Instead of using unsigned properties and rewriting the original code as:
(originally suggested by Segher Boessenkool <segher at kernel.crashing.org>)

  #define pfn_valid(pfn) \
               (((pfn) - ARCH_PFN_OFFSET) < (max_mapnr - ARCH_PFN_OFFSET))

Prefer a static inline function to make code as readable as possible.

Fix a warning (treated as error in W=1):
