sparc64: Fix kernel panic due to erroneous #ifdef surrounding pmd_write()

This commit moves sparc64's prototype of pmd_write() outside

In 2013, commit a7b9403f0e6d ("sparc64: Encode huge PMDs using PTE
encoding.") exposed a path where pmd_write() could be called without
CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE defined.  This can result in the panic below.

The diff is awkward to read, but the changes are straightforward.
pmd_write() was moved outside of #ifdef CONFIG_TRANSPARENT_HUGEPAGE.
Also, __HAVE_ARCH_PMD_WRITE was defined.
