SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] mm/ksm: ignore STABLE_FLAG of rmap_item->address in rmap_walk_ksm

It looks a straightforward safe fix, on x86 hva_to_gfn_memslot would
zap those bits and hide the misalignment caused by the low metadata
bits being erroneously left set in the address, but the arm code
notices when that's the last page in the memslot and the hva_end is
getting aligned and the size is below one page.

I think the problem triggers in the addr += PAGE_SIZE of
unmap_stage2_ptes that never matches end because end is aligned but
addr is not.

} while (pte++, addr += PAGE_SIZE, addr != end);

x86 again only works on hva_start/hva_end after converting it to
gfn_start/end and that being in pfn units the bits are zapped before
they risk to cause trouble.
