Subject[PATCH CPA] [18/28] CPA: Make change_page_attr() more robust against use of PAT bits
Date

Use the page table level instead of the PSE bit to check if the PTE
is for a 4K page or not. This makes the code more robust when the PAT
bit is changed because the PAT bit on 4K pages is in the same position as the
PSE bit.
