[PATCH 2/33] i386: define __pa_symbol

From: Eric W. Biederman
Date: Tue Aug 01 2006 - 07:04:41 EST

On x86_64 we have to be careful with calculating the physical
address of kernel symbols. Both because of compiler odditities
and because the symbols live in a different range of the virtual
address space.

Having a defintition of __pa_symbol that works on both x86_64 and
i386 simplifies writing code that works for both x86_64 and
i386 that has these kinds of dependencies.

So this patch adds the trivial i386 __pa_symbol definition.
