The linux/bug.h will only be included when __ASSEMBLY__ is not defined
which asm/bug.h is included even for assembly file.

Note that it's not possible to include linux/bug.h for assembly file
because the headers is not correctly protected.

As I don't know if asm/bug.h is useful in pgtable.h, I've decided to
keep it.
