Subject[patch 05/26] Xen-paravirt_ops: paravirt_ops: hooks to set up initial pagetable
This patch introduces paravirt_ops hooks to control how the kernel's
initial pagetable is set up.

In the case of a native boot, the very early bootstrap code creates a
simple non-PAE pagetable to map the kernel and physical memory. When
the VM subsystem is initialized, it creates a proper pagetable which
respects the PAE mode, large pages, etc.

When booting under a hypervisor, there are many possibilities for what
paging environment the hypervisor establishes for the guest kernel, so
the constructon of the kernel's pagetable depends on the hypervisor.

In the case of Xen, the hypervisor boots the kernel with a fully
constructed pagetable, which is already using PAE if necessary. Also,
Xen requires particular care when constructing pagetables to make sure
all pagetables are always mapped read-only.

In order to make this easier, kernel's initial pagetable construction
has been changed to only allocate and initialize a pagetable page if
there's no page already present in the pagetable. This allows the Xen
paravirt backend to make a copy of the hypervisor-provided pagetable,
allowing the kernel to establish any more mappings it needs while
keeping the existing ones.

A slightly subtle point which is worth highlighting here is that Xen
requires all kernel mappings to share the same pte_t pages between all
pagetables, so that updating a kernel page's mapping in one pagetable
is reflected in all other pagetables. This makes it possible to
allocate a page and attach it to a pagetable without having to
explicitly enumerate that page's mapping in all pagetables.
