This makes the transition from protection_map[] into __vm_get_page_prot()
more intuitive, where protection_map[] gets dropped. This helps platforms
(first ones subscribing ARCH_HAS_VM_GET_PAGE_PROT before this drop) create
/formulate the required switch case elements in their vm_get_page_prot().

The existing protection_map[] is not clear in demonstrating how exactly
the vm_flags combination is mapped into page protection map. This helps
clarify the underlying switch before we move on defining it on platforms.
