Well, turns out it is going to be a bit tricky. 

free_page_and_swap_cache() is defined in linux/swap.h but we can't just
include it from arch/x86/include/asm/pgtable.h as pgtable.h itself is
included from swap.h:

In file included from ./include/linux/mm.h:70:0,
                 from ./include/linux/memcontrol.h:29,
                 from ./include/linux/swap.h:8,
                 from ./include/linux/suspend.h:4,
                 from arch/x86/kernel/asm-offsets.c:12:
./arch/x86/include/asm/pgtable.h: In function ‘__tlb_remove_table’:
./arch/x86/include/asm/pgtable.h:1252:2: error: implicit declaration of 
function ‘free_page_and_swap_cache’; did you mean ‘file_write_and_wait_range’? 

An easy solution would be to make __tlb_remove_table() a define instead
of inline but personally I'd rather prefer to follow ARM and leave it in
