x86/mm: Teach is_new_memtype_allowed() about Write-Through type

__ioremap_caller() calls reserve_memtype() and the passed down
@new_pcm contains the actual page cache type it reserved in the
success case.

is_new_memtype_allowed() verifies if converting to the new page
cache type is allowed when @pcm (the requested type) is
different from @new_pcm.

When WT is requested, the caller expects that writes are ordered
and uncached. Therefore, enhance is_new_memtype_allowed() to
disallow the following cases:

- If the request is WT, mapping type cannot be WB
- If the request is WT, mapping type cannot be WC
