[PATCH v6 00/11] Speedup mremap on ppc64

This patchset enables MOVE_PMD/MOVE_PUD support on power. This requires
the platform to support updating higher-level page tables without
updating page table entries. This also needs to invalidate the Page Walk
Cache on architecture supporting the same.

Changes from v5:
* Drop patch mm/mremap: Move TLB flush outside page table lock
* Add fixes for race between optimized mremap and page out

Changes from v4:
* Change function name and arguments based on review feedback.

Changes from v3:
* Fix build error reported by kernel test robot
* Address review feedback.

Changes from v2:
* switch from using mmu_gather to flush_pte_tlb_pwc_range() 

Changes from v1:
* Rebase to recent upstream
* Fix build issues with tlb_gather_mmu changes
