Subject[PATCH v11 2/4] arm64: mm: implement arch_faults_on_old_pte() on arm64
Date
On arm64 without hardware Access Flag, copying from user will fail because
the pte is old and cannot be marked young. So we always end up with zeroed
page after fork() + CoW for pfn mappings. We don't always have a
hardware-managed Access Flag on arm64.

Hence implement arch_faults_on_old_pte on arm64 to indicate that it might
cause page fault when accessing old pte.
