Subject[tip:x86/urgent] x86/mm: Remove unused variable 'old_pte'

x86/mm: Remove unused variable 'old_pte'

The commit 3a19109efbfa ("x86/mm: Fix try_preserve_large_page() to
handle large PAT bit") fixed try_preserve_large_page() by using the
corresponding pud/pmd prot/pfn interfaces, but left a variable unused
because it no longer used pte_pfn().

Later, the commit 8679de0959e6 ("x86/mm/cpa: Split, rename and clean up
try_preserve_large_page()") renamed try_preserve_large_page() to
__should_split_large_page(), but the unused variable remains.

arch/x86/mm/pageattr.c: In function '__should_split_large_page':
arch/x86/mm/pageattr.c:741:17: warning: variable 'old_pte' set but not
used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]

Fixes: 3a19109efbfa ("x86/mm: Fix try_preserve_large_page() to handle large PAT bit")
