x86, mm, Xen: Remove mapping_pagetable_reserve()

Page table area are pre-mapped now after
x86, mm: setup page table in top-down
x86, mm: Remove early_memremap workaround for page table
accessing on 64bit

mapping_pagetable_reserve is not used anymore, so remove it.

Also remove operation in mask_rw_pte(), as modified allow_low_page
always return pages that are already mapped, moreover
xen_alloc_pte_init, xen_alloc_pmd_init, etc, will mark the page RO
before hooking it into the pagetable automatically.

-v2: add changelog about mask_rw_pte() from Stefano.

then how about 32bit mask_rw_pte? Maybe you can clean up that later?

Thanks
