Subject: [PATCH V3 1/3] mm/autonuma: Let architecture override how the write bit should be stashed in a protnone pte.

Autonuma preserves the write permission across numa fault to avoid taking
a writefault after a numa fault (Commit: b191f9b106ea " mm: numa: preserve PTE
write permissions across a NUMA hinting fault"). Architecture can implement
protnone in different ways and some may choose to implement that by clearing Read/
Write/Exec bit of pte. Setting the write bit on such pte can result in wrong
behaviour. Fix this up by allowing arch to override how to save the write bit
on a protnone pte.
