Hi Linus,

Please pull this single arm64 fix for 5.14. We received a report this week
that the generic version of pfn_valid(), which we switched to this merge
window in 16c9afc77660 ("arm64/mm: drop HAVE_ARCH_PFN_VALID"), interacts
badly with dma_map_resource() due to the following check:

        /* Don't allow RAM to be mapped */
        if (WARN_ON_ONCE(pfn_valid(PHYS_PFN(phys_addr))))
                return DMA_MAPPING_ERROR;

Since the ongoing saga to determine the semantics of pfn_valid() is
unlikely to be resolved this week (does it indicate valid memory, or
just the presence of a struct page, or whether that struct page has been
initialised?), just revert back to our old version of pfn_valid() for
5.14.

Thanks,

Will
