x86/mm/pti: Clear Global bit more aggressively
The kernel image starts out with the Global bit set across the entire kernel image. The bit is cleared with set_memory_nonglobal() in the configurations with PCIDs where the performance benefits of the Global bit are not needed. However, this is fragile. It means that we are stuck opting *out* of the less-secure (Global bit set) configuration, which seems backwards. Let's start more secure (Global bit clear) and then let things opt back in if they want performance, or are truly mapping common data between kernel and userspace. This fixes a bug. Before this patch, there are areas that are unmapped from the user page tables (like like everything above 0xffffffff82600000 in the example below). These have the hallmark of being a wrong Global area: they are not identical in the 'current_kernel' and 'current_user' page table dumps. They are also read-write, which means they're much more likely to contain secrets.
