    hugetlb: remove dummy definitions of HPAGE_MASK and HPAGE_SIZE · a5c86e98
    David Rientjes authored
    Dummy, non-zero definitions for HPAGE_MASK and HPAGE_SIZE were added in
     ("mm: ZAP_BLOCK causes redundant work") to avoid a divide
    by zero in generic kernel code.
    That code has since been removed, but probably should never have been
    added in the first place: we don't want HPAGE_SIZE to act like PAGE_SIZE
    for code that is working with hugepages, for example, when the
    dependency on CONFIG_HUGETLB_PAGE has not been fulfilled.
    Because hugepage size can differ from architecture to architecture, each
    is required to have their own definitions for both HPAGE_MASK and
    HPAGE_SIZE.  This is always done in arch/*/include/asm/page.h.
    So, just remove the dummy and dangerous definitions since they are no
    longer needed and reveals the correct dependencies.  Tested on
    architectures using the definitions with allyesconfig: x86 (even with
    thp), hppa, mips, powerpc, s390, sh3, sh4, sparc, and sparc64, and with
    defconfig on ia64.
