ARM: make virt_to_idmap() return unsigned long
Make virt_to_idmap() return an unsigned long rather than phys_addr_t. Returning phys_addr_t here makes no sense, because the definition of virt_to_idmap() is that it shall return a physical address which maps identically with the virtual address. Since virtual addresses are limited to 32-bit, identity mapped physical addresses are as well. Almost all users already had an implicit narrowing cast to unsigned long so let's make this official and part of this interface.
