The Linux guest page size and hypervisor page size concepts are
different, even though they happen to be the same value on x86. Hyper-V
code mixes up the two, so this patchset begins to address that by
creating and using a set of Hyper-V specific page definitions.

A major benefit of those new definitions is that they support non-x86
architectures, such as ARM64, that use different page sizes. On ARM64,
the guest page size may not be 4096, and Hyper-V always runs with a page
size of 4096.

In this patchset, the first two patches lay the foundation for the
others, creating definitions and preparing for memory allocations of
Hyper-V pages. Subsequent patches apply the definitions where the guest
VM and Hyper-V communicate, and where the code intends to use the
Hyper-V page size. The last two patches set the ring buffer size to a
fixed value, removing the dependencies on the guest page size.

This is the initial set of changes to the Hyper-V code, and future
patches will make additional changes using the same foundation, for
example, replace __vmalloc() and related functions when Hyper-V pages
are intended.
