Subject[PATCH] ARM: mm: avoid unneeded page protection fault for memory range with (VM_PFNMAP|VM_PFNWRITE)
Add L_PTE_DIRTY to PTEs for memory range with (VM_PFNMAP|VM_PFNWRITE),
then we could avoid unneeded page protection fault in write access
first time due to L_PTE_RDONLY.

There are no valid struct pages behind VM_PFNMAP range, so it make no
sense to set L_PTE_DIRTY in page fault handler.
