x86/mm/pti: Share entry text PMD
Share the entry text PMD of the kernel mapping with the user space mapping. If large pages are enabled this is a single PMD entry and at the point where it is copied into the user page table the RW bit has not been cleared yet. Clear it right away so the user space visible map becomes RX.
