mm: define pte_index as macro for x86

pte_index() is either defined as a macro (e.g.  sparc64) or as an
inlined function (e.g.  x86).  vm_insert_pages() depends on pte_index
but it is not defined on all platforms (e.g.  m68k).

To fix compilation of vm_insert_pages() on architectures not providing
pte_index(), we perform the following fix:

0. For platforms where it is meaningful, and defined as a macro, no
    change is needed.
1. For platforms where it is meaningful and defined as an inlined
    function, and we want to use it with vm_insert_pages(), we define
    a degenerate macro of the form:  #define pte_index pte_index
2. vm_insert_pages() checks for the existence of a pte_index macro
   definition. If found, it implements a batched insert. If not found,
   it devolves to calling vm_insert_page() in a loop.

This patch implements step 1 for x86.

v3 of this patch fixes a compilation warning for an unused method.
v2 of this patch moved a macro definition to a more readable location.
