arm64: mm: fix pmd_write CoW brokenness
Commit 9c7e535fcc17 ("arm64: mm: Route pmd thp functions through pte equivalents") changed the pmd manipulator and accessor functions to convert the target pmd to a pte, process it with the pte functions, then convert it back. Along the way, we gained support for PTE_WRITE, however this is completely ignored by set_pmd_at, and so we fail to set the PMD_SECT_RDONLY for PMDs, resulting in all sorts of lovely failures (like CoW not working). Partially reverting the offending commit (by making use of PMD_SECT_RDONLY explicitly for pmd_{write,wrprotect,mkwrite} functions) leads to further issues because pmd_write can then return potentially incorrect values for page table entries marked as RDONLY, leading to BUG_ON(pmd_write(entry)) tripping under some THP workloads. This patch fixes the issue by routing set_pmd_at through set_pte_at, which correctly takes the PTE_WRITE flag into account. Given that THP mappings are always anonymous, the additional cache-flushing code in __sync_icache_dcache won't impose any significant overhead as the flush will be skipped.
