So this implies, that with DEBUG_VM given kernel compiled with Radix MMU will
get stuck in soft lock up when forced to use hash MMU in cases where Radix MMU
is either not available or is disabled. Hence, we cannot enable that.

I will still fold the changes from Qian without enabling ppc64 Radix MMU and
respin V15. These new changes dont hurt, build every where and works good
on arm64 and x86 platforms. More over we know that they also fix a problem
for ppc64 Radix MMU platforms. Hence unless there are some other concerns we
should fold them in.
