Apologies for not spotting that when the patches were sent out for
stable review.
'arm64: mm: use correct mapping granularity under DEBUG_RODAT' needs a
special version for -stable which #defines SWAPPER_BLOCK_SIZE, since
that is a recent invention.

I will follow up with a new patch, please disregard this version in
the mean time
