Subject[PATCH] [5/31] Don't drop NX bit in pte modifier functions for 32bit
Date

The pte_* modifier functions that cleared bits dropped the NX bit on 32bit
PAE because they only worked in int, but NX is in bit 63. Fix that
by adding appropiate casts so that the arithmetic happens as long long
on PAE kernels.

I decided to just use 64bit arithmetic instead of open coding like
pte_modify() because gcc should generate good enough code for that now.

While this looks in theory like a .24 candidate this might trigger
some subtle latent bugs so it's better to delay it for .25 for more
testing.
