I know this is copied from arm64, but wouldn't this be a good time
to move this next to the struct page defintion?

Also this:

arch/arm64/mm/init.c:   BUILD_BUG_ON(sizeof(struct page) > (1 << STRUCT_PAGE_MAX_SHIFT));

should move to comment code (or would have to be duplicated for riscv)

> +				   STRUCT_PAGE_MAX_SHIFT))

Might be more readable with a another define, and without abuse of the
horrible UL macro:

#define VMEMMAP_SHIFT \
	(CONFIG_VA_BITS - PAGE_SHIFT - 1 + STRUCT_PAGE_MAX_SHIFT)
#define VMEMMAP_SIZE	(1UL << VMEMMAP_SHIFT)

> +#define VMEMMAP_END	(VMALLOC_START - 1)
> +#define VMEMMAP_START	(VMALLOC_START - VMEMMAP_SIZE)
> +
> +#define vmemmap		((struct page *)VMEMMAP_START)

This could also use some comments..

For potentially wide-spanning ifdefs like inclusion headers it always
is nice to have a comment with the symbol on the endif line.
