parisc: Change kunmap macro to static inline function

Change kunmap macro to static inline function to fix build error
compiling drivers/base/dma-buf.c.

Without the change, the following error can occur:

   CC      drivers/base/dma-buf.o
drivers/base/dma-buf.c: In function 'dma_buf_kunmap':
error: macro "kunmap" passed 3 arguments, but takes just 1

I believe parisc is the only arch to implement kunmap using a macro.
