Ping. Just wonder what is the status of this patch.

This patch is trivial and I successfully compiled it for sparc32.
swp_entry_to_pmd() will be the only user of __pmd() in sparc32,
returning __pmd(0). Having __pmd() can help replace following
code in include/linux/swapops.h (in linux-next:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/include/linux/swapops.h#n224):

static inline pmd_t swp_entry_to_pmd(swp_entry_t entry)
{
        pmd_t e;
        memset(&e, 0, sizeof(pmd_t));
        return e;
}

with:

static inline pmd_t swp_entry_to_pmd(swp_entry_t entry)
{
        return __pmd(0);
}

It makes the code more portable.

Thanks.
