Subject[PATCH 01/11] x86/mm: factor out pageattr _PAGE_GLOBAL setting
From
Date

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

The pageattr code has a pattern repeated where it sets
_PAGE_GLOBAL for present PTEs but clears it for non-present PTEs.
The intention is to keep _PAGE_GLOBAL from getting confused
with _PAGE_PROTNONE since _PAGE_GLOBAL is for present PTEs and
_PAGE_PROTNONE is for non-present

But, this pattern makes no sense. Effectively, it says, if
you use the pageattr code, always set _PAGE_GLOBAL when
_PAGE_PRESENT. canon_pgprot() will clear it if unsupported,
but we *always* set it.

This gets confusing when we have PTI and non-PTI and we want
some areas to have _PAGE_GLOBAL and some not.

This updated version of the code says:
1. Clear _PAGE_GLOBAL when !_PAGE_PRESENT
2. Never set _PAGE_GLOBAL implicitly
3. Allow _PAGE_GLOBAL to be in cpa.set_mask
4. Allow _PAGE_GLOBAL to be inherited from previous PTE

Aside: _PAGE_GLOBAL is ignored when CR4.PGE=1, so why do we
even go to the trouble of filtering it anywhere?
