Giving pgd_ctor() a properly typed parameter allows eliminating a local
variable. Adjust pgd_dtor() to match.

Also, pgd_ctor()'s clearing of the memory is redundant with the
GFP_ZERO used for allocating it.
Ack to the parameter type change. But there's already a patch in git to remove the redundant clear.

Again, I can't see this in my just refreshed tree - am I doing things wrong?
Or is this due to the myriads of topic branches (which of course I don't
check out all)?

No, the changes are in mainline linux-2.6.git, though you should be able to find them in master in tip.git.
