[PATCH 02/14] mm: page_poison: always declare __kernel_map_pages() function

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd at arndb.de>

The __kernel_map_pages() function is mainly used for
CONFIG_DEBUG_PAGEALLOC, but has a number of architecture specific
definitions that may also be used in other configurations, as well
as a global fallback definition for architectures that do not support

When the option is disabled, any definitions without the prototype
cause a warning:

mm/page_poison.c:102:6: error: no previous prototype for '__kernel_map_pages' [-Werror=missing-prototypes]

The function is a trivial nop here, so just declare it anyway
to avoid the warning.
