x86/mm: Prevent bogus warnings with "noexec=off"

Xose Vazquez Perez reported boot warnings when NX is disabled on the kernel command line.

__early_set_fixmap() triggers this warning:

attempted to set unsupported pgprot: 8000000000000163
bits: 8000000000000000
supported: 7fffffffffffffff

WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 0 at arch/x86/include/asm/pgtable.h:537
__early_set_fixmap+0xa2/0xff

because it uses __default_kernel_pte_mask to mask out unsupported bits.

Use __supported_pte_mask instead.

Disabling NX on the command line also triggers the NX warning in the page
table mapping check:

WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 1 at arch/x86/mm/dump_pagetables.c:262 note_page+0x2ae/0x650
....

Make the warning depend on NX set in __supported_pte_mask.
