Subject: ia64 broken by transparent huge pages - other arches too?

Didn't Andrew make some rash promise at kernel summit about stopping
eating if "-mm" wasn't included in linux-next by the end of November?

Must be getting pretty hungry by now.

The transparent huge page code just arrived in the merge window
without having been in linux-next.  I see this error when trying
to build for ia64 from Linus' tree this morning:

In file included from
/home/aegl/generic-smp/arch/ia64/include/asm/pgtable.h:611,
                 from include/linux/mm.h:41,

                 from arch/ia64/kernel/asm-offsets.c:17:

Looks like arch/*/include/pgtable.h needs to define __pmd() but only x86
was blessed with it.
