Subject[RFC PATCH 4/7] KVM: arm64: Steply write protect page table by mask bit
Date
During dirty log clear, page table entries are write protected
according to a mask. In the past we write protect all entries
corresponding to the mask from ffs to fls. Though there may be
zero bits between this range, we are holding the kvm mmu lock
so we won't write protect entries that we don't want to.

We are about to add support for hardware management of dirty state
to arm64, holding kvm mmu lock will be not enough. We should write
protect entries steply by mask bit.
