Hi all!

Seems I messed up the logic a bit -- reading the ifndef for an
ifdef reversing the actual behaviour of the code when applying the
patch. Below the corrected variant.

Subject: [PATCH] on parisc CONFIG_DISCONTIGMEM always depends on CONFIG_64BIT

Removing a conditional on 64BIT inside a DISCONTIGMEM block inside
arch/parisc. DISCONTIGMEM depends on ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE either
directly or through DISCONTIGMEM_MANUAL which in turn depends on 64BIT
inside Kconfig so the check and the else case isn't needed at all (the
else case can't ever be reached)
