Subject[PATCH 04/31] x86/mm: Introduce pte_accessible()
From: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>

We need pte_present to return true for _PAGE_PROTNONE pages, to indicate that
the pte is associated with a page.

However, for TLB flushing purposes, we would like to know whether the pte
points to an actually accessible page. This allows us to skip remote TLB
flushes for pages that are not actually accessible.
