Update memremap_pmem() to query the architecture for the mapping type

evaluate in the event an arch has a need for different mapping types by
address range. For example the ACPI NFIT carries EFI mapping types in
its memory range description table.
I don't think the pmem driver should look at a arch hook here, please
communicate this through the nvdimm subsystem.
Btw, looking at these changes I also think the __pmem annotations
are mistake. We might have all kinds of ways to write to pmem,
and as long as we properly flush it we don't need to force it
through the special accessors. This becomes really interesting
for PCI DMA access.
