Subject[patch 32/60] x86/mm/kpti: Allow NX poison to be set in p4d/pgd
From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@linux.intel.com>

With KERNEL_PAGE_TABLE_ISOLATION the user portion of the kernel page
tables is poisoned with the NX bit so if the entry code exits with the
kernel page tables selected in CR3, userspace crashes.

But doing so trips the p4d/pgd_bad() checks. Make sure it does not do
that.
