arm64: mm: avoid redundant __pa(__va(x))
When we "upgrade" to a section mapping, we free any table we made redundant by giving it back to memblock. To get the PA, we acquire the physical address and convert this to a VA, then subsequently convert this back to a PA. This works currently, but will not work if the tables are not accessed via linear map VAs (e.g. is we use fixmap slots). This patch uses {pmd,pud}_page_paddr to acquire the PA. This avoids the __pa(__va()) round trip, saving some work and avoiding reliance on the linear mapping.
