Subject: [PATCH v3 kernel 3/7] mm: add a function to get the max pfn

Expose the function to get the max pfn, so it can be used in the
virtio-balloon device driver. Simply include the 'linux/bootmem.h'
is not enough, if the device driver is built to a module, directly
refer the max_pfn lead to build failed.
