Subject[PATCH 1/4] rmap: add page_wrprotect() function,
Date
From: Izik Eidus <izike@qumranet.com>

this function is useful for cases you want to compare page and know
that its value wont change during you compare it.

this function is working by walking over the whole rmap of a page
and mark every pte related to the page as write_protect.

the odirect_sync paramter is used to notify the caller of
page_wrprotect() if one pte or more was not marked readonly
in order to avoid race with odirect.
