arm: mm: Enable RCU fast_gup
Activate the RCU fast_gup for ARM. We also need to force THP splits to broadcast an IPI s.t. we block in the fast_gup page walker. As THP splits are comparatively rare, this should not lead to a noticeable performance degradation. Signed-off-by: Steve Capper <steve.capper@linaro.org>
