Some architectures do not define PAGE_KERNEL_RO, best we can do
for them is to provide a fallback onto PAGE_KERNEL. Remove the
hack from the firmware loader and move it onto the asm-generic
header, and document while at it the affected architectures
which do not have a PAGE_KERNEL_RO:

  o alpha
  o ia64
  o m68k
  o mips
  o sparc64
  o sparc
