[ARM] fixmap support
This is the minimum fixmap interface expected to be implemented by architectures supporting highmem. We have a second level page table already allocated and covering 0xfff00000-0xffffffff because the exception vector page is located at 0xffff0000, and various cache tricks already use some entries above 0xffff0000. Therefore the PTEs covering 0xfff00000-0xfffeffff are free to be used. However the XScale cache flushing code already uses virtual addresses between 0xfffe0000 and 0xfffeffff. So this reserves the 0xfff00000-0xfffdffff range for fixmap stuff. The Documentation/arm/memory.txt information is updated accordingly, including the information about the actual top of DMA memory mapping region which didn't match the code.
