arm: mm: Introduce special ptes for LPAE
We need a mechanism to tag ptes as being special, this indicates that no attempt should be made to access the underlying struct page * associated with the pte. This is used by the fast_gup when operating on ptes as it has no means to access VMAs (that also contain this information) locklessly. The L_PTE_SPECIAL bit is already allocated for LPAE, this patch modifies pte_special and pte_mkspecial to make use of it, and defines __HAVE_ARCH_PTE_SPECIAL. This patch also excludes special ptes from the icache/dcache sync logic. Signed-off-by: Steve Capper <steve.capper@linaro.org>
