SubjectRe: Xen MMU's requirement to pin pages RO and initial_memory_mapping.

Ok, so could we use those two calls to trigger the pagetable walk
and mark them RO as appropiate? Which call sites are those? The
xen_set_pgd/xen_set_pud/xen_set_pmd ? Presumarily we don't have
to do that for the PTE's that are already mapped (as
xen_setup_kernel_pagetable, and xen_map_identity_early do this
already).
