Subject[RFC PATCH 4/4] kvm/mmu_notifier: re-enable the change_pte() optimization.
Date
From: Jérôme Glisse <jglisse@redhat.com>

Since changes to mmu notifier the change_pte() optimization was lost
for kvm. This re-enable it, when ever a pte is going from read and
write to read only with same pfn, or from read only to read and write
with different pfn.

It is safe to update the secondary MMUs, because the primary MMU
pte invalidate must have already happened with a ptep_clear_flush()
before set_pte_at_notify() is invoked (and thus before change_pte()
callback).
