mm: ZERO_PAGE without PTE_SPECIAL
Reinstate anonymous use of ZERO_PAGE to all architectures, not just to those which __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL: as suggested by Nick Piggin. Contrary to how I'd imagined it, there's nothing ugly about this, just a zero_pfn test built into one or another block of vm_normal_page(). But the MIPS ZERO_PAGE-of-many-colours case demands is_zero_pfn() and my_zero_pfn() inlines. Reinstate its mremap move_pte() shuffling of ZERO_PAGEs we did from 2.6.17 to 2.6.19? Not unless someone shouts for that: it would have to take vm_flags to weed out some cases.
