Subject[tip:x86/pti] x86/pti: Make sure the user/kernel PTEs match

x86/pti: Make sure the user/kernel PTEs match

Meelis reported that his K8 Athlon64 emits MCE warnings when PTI is
enabled:

[Hardware Error]: Error Addr: 0x0000ffff81e000e0
[Hardware Error]: MC1 Error: L1 TLB multimatch.
[Hardware Error]: cache level: L1, tx: INSN

The address is in the entry area, which is mapped into kernel _AND_ user
space. That's special because we switch CR3 while we are executing
there.

User mapping:
0xffffffff81e00000-0xffffffff82000000 2M ro PSE GLB x pmd

Kernel mapping:
0xffffffff81000000-0xffffffff82000000 16M ro PSE x pmd

So the K8 is complaining that the TLB entries differ. They differ in the
GLB bit.

Drop the GLB bit when installing the user shared mapping.
