Subject[081/200] powerpc/fsl-booke: Fix InstructionTLBError execute permission check
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Li Yang <leoli@freescale.com>

commit 78e2e68a2b79f394b7cd61e07987a8a89af907f7 upstream.

In CONFIG_PTE_64BIT the PTE format has unique permission bits for user
and supervisor execute. However on !CONFIG_PTE_64BIT we overload the
supervisor bit to imply user execute with _PAGE_USER set. This allows
us to use the same permission check mask for user or supervisor code on
!CONFIG_PTE_64BIT.

However, on CONFIG_PTE_64BIT we map _PAGE_EXEC to _PAGE_BAP_UX so we
need a different permission mask based on the fault coming from a kernel
address or user space.

Without unique permission masks we see issues like the following with
modules:

Unable to handle kernel paging request for instruction fetch
Faulting instruction address: 0xf938d040
Oops: Kernel access of bad area, sig: 11 [#1]
