powerpc/mm/radix: Only need the Nest MMU workaround for R -> RW transition
The Nest MMU workaround is only needed for RW upgrades. Avoid doing that for other PTE updates. We also avoid clearing the PTE while marking it invalid. This is because other page table walkers will find this PTE none and can result in unexpected behaviour due to that. Instead we clear _PAGE_PRESENT and set the software PTE bit _PAGE_INVALID. pte_present() is already updated to check for both bits. This makes sure page table walkers will find the PTE present and things like pte_pfn(pte) returns the right value.
