I guess one could reimplemenet kmap_atomic_pfn() to call this. Sometime.

Given that all highmem-implementing archtiectures must use the same
declaration here, we might as well put it into include/linux/highmem.h.
Although that goes against current mistakes^Wcode.
Does powerpc32 still implement highmem? It seems that way. You broke
