Subject[PATCH 06/11] x86/mm: remove extra filtering in pageattr code
From
Date

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

The pageattr code has a mode where it can set or clear PTE bits in
existing PTEs, so the page protections of the *new* PTEs come from
one of two places:
1. The set/clear masks: cpa->mask_clr / cpa->mask_set
2. The existing PTE

We filter ->mask_set/clr for supported PTE bits at entry to
__change_page_attr() so we never need to filter them again.

The only other place permissions can come from is an existing PTE
and those already presumably have good bits. We do not need to filter
them again.
