eww.  I suppose there's a good reason for the casting.

It seems strange to call out to arch_foo() from within an arch header file.
I mean, we implicity know we're i386.

Maybe it's just poorly named.

These functions are unreferenced in this patchset.

Can we lose __HAVE_ARCH_MM_LIFETIME?  Just define these (preferably in C,
not in cpp) in the appropriate include/asm-foo/ files?

Perhaps some commentary telling the arch maintainer what these hooks he's
being offered are for?
