Subject: [PATCH 1 of 7] x86: add _PAGE_IOMAP pte flag for IO mappings

Use one of the software-defined PTE bits to indicate that a mapping is
intended for an IO address.  On native hardware this is irrelevent,
since a physical address is a physical address.  But in a virtual
environment, physical addresses are also virtualized, so there needs
to be some way to distinguish between pseudo-physical addresses and
actual hardware addresses; _PAGE_IOMAP indicates this intent.

By default, __supported_pte_mask masks out _PAGE_IOMAP, so it doesn't
even appear in the final pagetable.
