Subject: [PATCH] x86/mm: Prevent bogus warnings with "noexec=off"

Xose reported warnings when NX is disabled on the kernel command line.

__early_set_fixmap() triggers:

  attempted to set unsupported pgprot:    8000000000000163
  	       	   	       bits:      8000000000000000
			       supported: 7fffffffffffffff

  WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 0 at arch/x86/include/asm/pgtable.h:537
  	   	       	    __early_set_fixmap+0xa2/0xff

because it uses __default_kernel_pte_mask to mask out unsupported bits.

Use __supported_pte_mask instead.

Disabling NX on the command line also triggers the NX warning in the page
table mapping check:

  WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 1 at arch/x86/mm/dump_pagetables.c:262 note_page+0x2ae/0x650
  ....

Make the warning depend on NX set in __supported_pte_mask.
