Hi, Thomas

In this patch, it looks you are trying to do two things for my understanding:
1. To include <asm/fixmap.h> in asm/pagetable_64.h and remove the include in
some of the x86 files
2. Remove <asm/fixmap.h> in mm/vmalloc.c

I think your change log covers the second task in the patch, but not not talk
about the first task you did in the patch. If you could mention it in commit
log, it would be good for maintain.

BTW, I have little knowledge about MODULE_END. By searching the code
MODULE_END is not used in arch/x86. If you would like to mention the commit
which introduce the problem, it would be more helpful to review the code.

Hmm... I see in both pgtable_32.h and pgtable_64.h will include <asm/fixmap.h>
after this change. And pgtable_32.h and pgtable_64.h will be included only in
pgtable.h. So is it possible to include <asm/fixmap.h> in pgtable.h for once
instead of include it in both files? Any concerns you would have?
