arm64 appears to be upgrading all set_pte()s on valid kernel mappings to
include the fence.  It looks like the message from 7f0b1bf04511 ("arm64: Fix
barriers used for page table modifications") is out of date, as I can't find
create_mapping() any more.  If that was some generic kernel thing then we
should probably upgrade ours as well, but if it was arch/arm64/ code then this
approach seems fine as __set_fixmap() isn't on the hot path -- I guess this is
fine either way, but there may be other issues that the arm64 approach fixes.

Do you guys happen to remember what was going on here?
