[PATCH v9 3/7] powerpc: mm: Add common pud_pfn stub for all platforms

Prior to this commit, pud_pfn was implemented with BUILD_BUG as the inline
function for 64-bit Book3S systems but is never included, as its
invocations in generic code are guarded by calls to pud_devmap which return
zero on such systems. A future patch will provide support for page table
checks, the generic code for which depends on a pud_pfn stub being
implemented, even while the patch will not interact with puds directly.

Remove the 64-bit Book3S stub and define pud_pfn to warn on all
platforms. pud_pfn may be defined properly on a per-platform basis
should it grow real usages in future.
