Subject: [PATCH 1/3] x86/mm: factor out conditional pageattr PTE bit setting code


From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@...ux.intel.com>

The pageattr code has a pattern repeated where it sets a PTE bit
for present PTEs but clears it for non-present PTEs.  This helps
to keep pte_none() from getting messed up.  _PAGE_GLOBAL is the
most frequent target of this pattern.

This pattern also includes a nice, copy-and-pasted comment.

I want to do some special stuff with _PAGE_GLOBAL in a moment,
so refactor this a _bit_ to centralize the comment and the
bit operations.
