Subject: x86/vmemmap: drop handling of 4K unaligned vmemmap range

Patch series "Cleanup and fixups for vmemmap handling", v6.

This series contains cleanups to remove dead code that handles unaligned
cases for 4K and 1GB pages (patch#1 and patch#2) when removing the vemmmap
range, and a fix (patch#3) to handle the case when two vmemmap ranges
intersect the same PMD.


This patch (of 4):

remove_pte_table() is prepared to handle the case where either the start
or the end of the range is not PAGE aligned.  This cannot actually happen:

__populate_section_memmap enforces the range to be PMD aligned, so as long
as the size of the struct page remains multiple of 8, the vmemmap range
will be aligned to PAGE_SIZE.

Drop the dead code and place a VM_BUG_ON in vmemmap_{populate,free} to
catch nasty cases.  Note that the VM_BUG_ON is placed in there because
vmemmap_{populate,free= } is the gate of all removing and freeing page
tables logic.
