Subject[patch V2 06/10] x86/mm/cpa: Avoid static protection checks on unmap
If the new pgprot has the PRESENT bit cleared, then conflicts vs. RW/NX are
completely irrelevant.

Before:

1G pages checked: 2
1G pages sameprot: 0
1G pages preserved: 0
2M pages checked: 540
2M pages sameprot: 466
2M pages preserved: 47
4K pages checked: 800770
4K pages set-checked: 7668

After:

1G pages checked: 2
1G pages sameprot: 0
1G pages preserved: 0
2M pages checked: 540
2M pages sameprot: 466
2M pages preserved: 47
4K pages checked: 800709
4K pages set-checked: 7668
