Subject[PATCH RFC 08/15] KVM: selftests: Always clear dirty bitmap after iteration
We don't clear the dirty bitmap before because KVM_GET_DIRTY_LOG will
clear it for us before copying the dirty log onto it. However we'd
still better to clear it explicitly instead of assuming the kernel
will always do it for us.

More importantly, in the upcoming dirty ring tests we'll start to
fetch dirty pages from a ring buffer, so no one is going to clear the
dirty bitmap for us.
