Following up on this, now, set_memory_present() is a static interface,
so will need do add a new external API like set_memory_p() similar
to set_memory_np().

Also, looking at arch/x86/include/asm/set_memory.h:
..
/*
* The set_memory_* API can be used to change various attributes of a
* virtual address range. The attributes include:
* Cacheability : UnCached, WriteCombining, WriteThrough, WriteBack
* Executability : eXecutable, NoteXecutable
* Read/Write : ReadOnly, ReadWrite
* Presence : NotPresent
* Encryption : Encrypted, Decrypted
*
..
int set_memory_np(unsigned long addr, int numpages);
..

So currently there is no interface defined for changing the attribute of
a range to present or restoring the range in the direct map.

Thanks,
Ashish
